At Ontario Tech University we take a broad approach to preventing, addressing and resolving Human Rights matters. The Human Rights Office is available to assist University Members to address a continuum of behaviours that create a toxic campus environment.

The Human Rights Office provides supports and tools to campus parties involved in human rights-related conflict. We support: de-escalation, dialogue, facilitated discussions and formal investigations. Confidential consultations are available to anyone who wants to understand their rights or who suspects a policy breach.  

University members can also report concerns formally to the Human Rights Office. Wherever possible, the Human Rights Office will employ early and informal resolution practices to resolve conflict and restore the campus environment. If these techniques are not appropriate or fail to resolve the matter, the Human Rights Office will ensure matters are addressed consistent with the University’s various policy instruments to address and/or investigate discrimination, harassment and formal reports of Student Sexual Violence.
