Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Research

Through our research and community actions, the person to population research collaborative group aims to adhere to and promote principles of equity, diversity and inclusion outline in the Government of Canada Best Practices in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Research

What is equity?

  • Equity is defined as the removal of systemic barriers and biases enabling all individuals to have equal opportunity to access and benefit from the program.
    • To achieve this, all individuals who participate in the research ecosystem must develop a strong understanding of the systemic barriers faced by individuals from underrepresented groups (e.g., women, persons with disabilities, Indigenous Peoples, racialized minorities, individuals from the LGBTQ2+ community) and put in place impactful measures to address these barriers.

What is diversity?

  • Diversity is defined as differences in race, colour, place of origin, religion, immigrant and newcomer status, ethnic origin, ability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and age.
    • A diversity of perspectives and lived experiences is fundamental to achieving research and training excellence.

What is inclusion?

  • Inclusion is defined as the practice of ensuring that all individuals are valued and respected for their contributions and are equally supported.
    • Ensuring that all team members are integrated and supported is fundamental to achieving research and training excellence.
