We Want to Hear From You

Consultation on Policy and Procedures for the accommodation of employees and candidates with disabilities 

The Human Resources Office has drafted our first Royal Roads University's policy (and corresponding procedures) to provide accommodation to employees and employment candidates with disabilities. The content and wording of the policy and procedures were a result of a detailed research process on best practices both in post-secondary institutions and in public institutions at the provincial and national levels. The Human Resources office also took as reference points the provincial and federal human rights standards, specifically those that belong to the area of accommodation in the labour sphere.

Royal Roads University is committed to inclusive policy decision-making. We highly value community engagement and participation through consultation. By adopting this approach, we seek to create a venue to interrogate assumptions and courses of action, incorporate diverse perspectives, identify unintended effects, and find solutions collectively. When the community becomes the leading voice, we ensure inclusiveness, building an organization tailored to our needs, and enhancing confidence in the legitimacy and credibility of our decision-making processes.

If you are a person with a disability, a faculty member with scholarship in the area of accommodation of persons with disabilities, a manager/supervisor who has provided accommodation for employees, or an employee who works in areas that have operational responsibility for implementing accommodations, and if you think this policy and procedures can benefit from your experiences and expertise, we would like to know your thoughts. It would be crucial for RRU that the very people whom the university aims to support, lead the way to strengthen these mechanisms.

The protection of your privacy is a priority for us. If you are a person with a disability, you are free to decide whether or not to disclose that dimension of your life when providing your feedback.  

The way you can participate in this consultation is the following: Please submit an email to Alejandro Campos-Garcia and Lisa Robinson with the subject Interested in Participating in the Review of Accommodation Policy and Procedures. We will send you the policy and procedures, and a form in which you can share your questions and comments, suggestions on wording and provisions, and/or recommendations. Once you have filled out the form, you can upload the file to the RRU Dropbox, sending to Alejandro.Camposgarcia@royalroads.ca and lisa.2robinson@royalroads.ca.

This consultation process will be open until March 16, 2021.

We greatly value your feedback and hope you take a moment to build a better RRU.
