Text:

Diverse communities and groups make up the population of Toronto. The City of Toronto values the contributions made by all its people and believes that the diversity among its people has strengthened Toronto.

The City recognizes the dignity and worth of all people by equitably treating communities and employees, fairly providing services, by consulting with communities and making sure everyone can participate in decision-making.

The City recognizes the unique status and cultural diversity of the Aboriginal communities and their right to self-determination.

The City recognizes the barriers of discrimination and disadvantage faced by human rights protected groups.

To address this, the City will create an environment of equality in the government and in the community for all people regardless of their race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, disability, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, same sex partnership, age, marital status, family status, immigrant status, receipt of public assistance, political affiliation, religious affiliation, level of literacy, language and/or socio-economic status.

The City of Toronto will implement positive changes in its workforce and communities to achieve access and equality of outcomes for all residents and to create a harmonious environment free from discrimination, harassment and hate.
