Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Accessibility at Canadore College

Welcome to Canadore College’s Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDEA) site. Here you will find resources, information, support materials, and upcoming events to promote inclusive practices and principles, and to establish respectful learning, and working environments that are free from discrimination. We invite you to explore the website to learn about some of the strategic initiatives that we are currently focusing on and professional development opportunities to come soon. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or recommendations that you may have.


Canadore College fosters a positive, inclusive, and accepting campus community that empowers, values, supports, and promotes accountability, equity, equality, human rights, respect, justice, and safety. Canadore will lead in the innovation, change and growth of a safe, equitable, diverse, and respectful community, to foster respect, authenticity and belonging.

We are committed to cultivating, celebrating, and strengthening cultural inclusion and experiences for all individuals, and we encourage and support individual and collaborative efforts to create positive experiences that realize continuous improvement.

We will identify and address inequities, ensuring access to education and related opportunities, while actively reducing barriers. Contributions of all voices are welcome as we engage and enable diverse ideas, knowledge, and perspectives in the pursuit of inclusive excellence for the well-being of individuals as members of the college community.

Preferred Name Change for Employees

Organizational Development and Talent Management (ODTM) can facilitate a preferred name change request on your behalf. This can be processed at any point throughout your time with us at Canadore. It is important to us to ensure that you are identified properly in our hallways and all other extensions of our Canadore community. 

When successfully carried out, your dead name/legal name will be changed to reflect your preferred name on all your front-facing components.
