At Peel CAS, our values drive our commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). We believe that DEI is not just the right thing to do, it is the smart thing to do for our staff, children, youth, volunteers, caregivers, partners, and the communities that we serve.
We invite you to review the information in this section to learn about our DEI journey and community partnerships, discover our array of ethno-culturally responsive programs, and connect with our Community Engagement team.
We appreciate and celebrate the diversity in all levels of our organization including our Board, and are grateful that our workplace diversity is representative of the communities that we serve. We have a long history of leadership in diversity, equity and inclusion, working with community partners to confront racism and oppression of marginalized communities. Yet, we know that there is more work to be done.
Canada is the proud home of one of the world's largest Tamil Diasporas. Tamil Canadians enrich our national fabric through their many achievements in all areas of business, sports, politics, art and more. This month offers an opportunity to learn more about Tamil history and culture, and show our appreciation for their invaluable role in building a diverse, inclusive Canada.
February is Black History Month - a time for all Canadians to honour the history of the African-Caribbean-Black community in this country, and celebrate the community's ongoing contributions.
