Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At CLUOV we believe that greater diversity will further strengthen our talent pool, enabling us to better serve and achieve outcomes. We are convinced that the different viewpoints and experiences of a diverse workforce offer the best value to the people we support and our employees. We want CLUOV to be an organization where everyone feels included, where everyone is in an environment where they can thrive, where everyone can be their ‘true self’, and where everyone can reach their full potential. We are dedicated to:

  • Promoting inclusiveness in our policies, practices and business relationships;
  • Proactively recruiting and onboarding candidates from a diverse applicant pool; and
  • Raising awareness of diversity and inclusion through voluntary training, continuous learning and perspective sharing.

We recognize that CLUOV sits on the unseeded and traditional land and territory of the Algonquin people. CLUOV will continue working to learn about and participate more actively in resolving issues faced by the original inhabitants of this area.

We are so thankful to have these six share their stories and represent the history of so many more, opening our eyes to what should never be forgotten so we can learn from the past. ________________
