Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

CPSO is committed to addressing discrimination to contribute to a more equitable health care system

Print page icon

CPSO has made a commitment to examine how we, as an organisation, can better fulfill our mandate through bringing equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) to our processes and policies. We are committed to addressing all forms of discrimination, including anti-racism, gender bias, rights of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities, and discrimination faced by other equity-seeking groups. As we continue to listen, learn and be reflexive in this work, we are inviting you to do the same. Here are some resources that can help in this life-long journey of learning and unlearning. The College will be adding to this collection as additional resources become available.

Please read our report on CPSO's EDI-related activities in 2021 and review the glossary for definitions of commonly used terms.
