Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

This page is where the College will post resources concerning the fundamental importance of “Cultural Diversity and Inclusion” and ongoing efforts to combat racism and discrimination.  Registrants can read, reflect on and respond as appropriate.  We also welcome your suggestions regarding resources.  Please forward your suggestions to communications@caslpo.com.  There is more that we can do together. This is a shared responsibility. We are planning an E-Forum to review the College’s professional Code of Ethics and the Guide for Service Delivery Across Diverse Cultures. Please watch for further information.

CASLPO Statement On Anti-Racism And The Provision Of Ethical Care

The College acknowledges the existence of discrimination, including systemic racism in the Province of Ontario, and that it must be addressed by government and all of us working together. The importance of this acknowledgement and recognition has been highlighted in recent weeks by the Black Lives Matter movement in the United States and globally. It is therefore crucial for us to recognize the need to maintain focus on this important issue to enable us to do our part and contribute to making change happen.
