Group Guidelines for Participation

Be respectful
The aim is to create a welcoming and safe environment.  Please treat everyone with respect.  Different points of view and healthy debates are natural, but respect is required.

No discrimination and harassment
We want to make sure everyone feels safe.  Bullying, discrimination and harassment are not permitted, and degrading comments about people and displays of discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, marital status, family status, disability, or receipt of public assistance or record of offences will not be tolerated.

Respect everyone’s privacy
Participating in this group (and discussion activities) requires mutual trust.  Authentic sharing and dialogue add to an engaging group experience and opportunity for connection but may also include information that is sensitive and private.  Private information shared in the group session/dialogue should stay among the session participants to respect everyone’s privacy.

Program facilitators will provide support and guidance to participants as needed to maintain a safe and welcoming environment for diverse group members.  Any member who has concerns and feels unsafe/unwelcome at any time is encouraged to let the program facilitators know as soon as possible.
