OCDSB Human Rights Policy Consultation

The OCDSB is committed to promoting and protecting the human rights of its students, their families, its employees and the wider OCDSB community. In January 2021 we began consulting with students, parents/guardians, staff and community members as the OCDSB works to create a district-wide human rights policy. This was done through small group discussions and an online survey. We received 1732 responses to our survey last April. Interested in seeing the results of the survey? Take a look

Based on what we learned we have drafted a new Human Rights Policy. This policy will promote and protect the human rights of students, families, staff, and community members. 

Now we are looking for your feedback on this draft human rights policy. Feedback can be sent in writing by November 5, 2021 to consultation.humanrights@ocdsb.ca. Learn more on our website.

Discussion with Indigenous Communities: We invite First Nations, Métis, and Inuit family and community members to join a virtual discussion on November 1, from 4:00pm to 5:30pm to share your ideas to improve the draft Human Rights Policy which references Indigenous rights. The discussion will be facilitated by Jody Alexander, who leads the Indigenous Education and Learning team, together with Carolyn Tanner, OCDSB Human Rights and Equity Advisor. Please register here, and you can learn more about the Human Rights Policy Consultation on our website.
