Equity, diversity, inclusion & belonging

Equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging (EDI&B) is a strategic priority at Georgian. We’re committed to fostering a learning and working environment where everyone feels seen, heard and knows they belong through demonstrable, accountable and system-wide commitments to diversity, de-colonization, anti-racism, equity and inclusion.

EDI&B in action

National Day for Truth & Reconciliation

Sept. 30 is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day to reflect on and commemorate the painful legacy of Canada’s residential schools. Several events are planned across all campuses leading up to Sept. 30. Learn more about Indigenous Services at Georgian College and see events and activities in our campus communities.

Celebrating Emancipation Day

Aug. 1 was officially designated as Emancipation Day in Canada. The Pan-African flag was raised on all Georgian College campuses on July 27 to honour this date. Learn more about Emancipation Day activities. Georgian College Students’ Association (GCSA) celebrated the Toronto Caribbean Carnival’s 55th anniversary of the Grande Parade on July 30.

Celebrating Pride Month

June was Pride Month! We recognize and celebrate Pride here at Georgian. Pride is a chance for everyone to celebrate the rich history and contributions of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
