INTRODUCTION

McGill University is committed to fulfilling its mission within an institutional environment that embraces equity and diversity. The University seeks to be proactive in attracting suitably qualified representatives of certain designated groups, as identified by federal and provincial legislation, as well as McGill’s Employment Equity Policy. These groups include women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, ethnic minorities, persons of minority sexual orientation or gender identity, and visible minorities.

Employment equity recruitment guidelines are to be followed by all units in the course of hiring ranked academic staff (tenure track and contract academic staff).


PROCESS

Each department that is recruiting ranked academic staff must:

  • Take steps to attract applications from suitably qualified members of the designated groups.
  • Include the following Equity Statement (including the mandatory immigration statement) in any position advertisement:
