ETFO provides equity and women’s programs in the context of its fundamental constitutional object:
to foster a climate of social justice in Ontario and continue a leadership role in such areas as anti-poverty, non-violence and equity
and in the spirit of the definition of equity adopted by the ETFO Executive:
ETFO recognizes that we live in a society characterized by individual and systemic discrimination against particular groups. Within this context ETFO defines equity as fairness achieved through proactive measures which result in equality for all.
A comprehensive policy on social justice and equity was adopted by delegates to the 2003 Annual Meeting and ETFO’s Statement on Social Justice and Equity, adopted in 2002, provides more detail on ETFO’s philosophical approach to equity issues.
