Duty to accommodate
The Public Service Alliance of Canada is committed to ensuring that workplaces are equitable and fair. As our communities and workplaces continue to become more diverse, human rights remain essential in providing inclusive representation to our membership. In order to address diversity and inclusion, we must remove the barriers that prevent historically excluded and disadvantaged groups from fully participating in their workplaces and communities.
This Guide is set up as a question and answer document. If you have questions that are not answered in this document, contact your Local or Component for further information.
