As a comprehensive University serving a diverse community, the University of the Fraser Valley is committed to creating and maintaining an environment where all people are treated with dignity and respect within which education and employment equity can be realized. UFV, therefore, affirms its commitment, at all levels, to the principles that all people regardless of gender, sexual preference, race, ethnicity, religion or disability, have a right to equitable education and employment. UFV will seek to embody equity by the design of educational and employment practices which ensure that no one is denied the opportunity for reasons unrelated to ability.

Employment equity compliance review
Compliance reviews are an integral part of an Employment Equity Program. Since the inception of this program, UFV has periodically requested every faculty and staff members complete an employment equity survey. The survey asks employees to identify whether or not they belong to one or more designated groups, using criteria the federal government has established. Completion of this survey is voluntary, though all employees are required to return the survey, and the results are kept confidential. The survey results also assist UFV in developing employment equity initiatives that complement the Employment Equity Program.
The success of UFV's Employment Equity Program depends largely on your support. Learn more about this very important process at Human Resources and Skills Development Canada.
