Our commitment to diversity, accessibility, equity, inclusion and respect (DAEIR)

The CEP strives to be an organization which upholds the values diversity, accessibility, equity, inclusion and respect. Following the recent series of events in both Canada and other jurisdictions, we realized there was a need to examine our work to better serve equity deserving groups and achieve our organization mission and vision.

In the fall of 2021, we sought help from experts outside of the organization and engaged ParriagGroup to audit our tools, services, and internal human resources practices, with the intent to apply a Diversity, Accessibility, Equity, Inclusion, and Respect (DAEIR) framework to all our future endeavours. We recognize that we are at the beginning of unlearning and undoing practices that contribute to the oppression of marginalized groups. As we embark upon this journey, we are firmly committed to engaging in the ongoing conversations and relationships necessary to ensure that our work contributes to dismantling oppressive systems which unfairly penalize many of our fellow Canadians.
