Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)

The Faculty of Nursing recognizes a growing demand for social responsiveness and accountability within health sciences. We vow to identify and promote practices and principles that celebrate the strengths in difference and ensures equitable opportunities in employment, health sciences education and delivery of care. Visit the sections below to learn more about how we are working to continually develop and improve in these important areas.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

The Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity (EDI) Committee promotes a high level, consistent, and reliably strong commitment to EDI and facilitates the implementation of the Faculty of Nursing’s vision and mission
through initiatives that foster equity, diversity and inclusivity. We will continue to promote health, equity and quality of life for the public good by creating vibrant and supportive environments, advancing health science, and developing nurse leaders.


Indigenous Nursing Initiative

In 2009 the Faculty of Nursing received funding from the Provost's Office to develop an Indigenous Nursing Initiative. The Indigenous Nursing Initiative was founded to encourage a greater number of First Nations, Inuit and Métis students gain access to, and graduate from, all Faculty of Nursing Programs.
