York Pride

  • You’re invited to attend a Freedom of Speech Policy Consultation session!

    The provincial government has asked that all Ontario universities and colleges have a freedom of speech policy in place by January 1, 2019. In response, a working group has been established at York to consult with the community and prepare a draft document for approval. Chair of the working group is Lorne Sossin. The working group has created a dedicated website. There you will find the following:

    • consultation dates;
    • the mandate, membership and resources, with an appendix linked to relevant legislation and York policies
    • a form to share your thoughts about the initiative and respond to questions posed by the Working Group
    • a link to our Facebook page from where you can submit comments.
