Recognized as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2017)

Here are some of the reasons why Sinai Health System was selected as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2017):

  • Sinai Health System established an Anti-Homophobia-Transphobia Action subcommittee, responsible for creating a welcoming environment for LGBT staff and patients -- the committee hosts monthly meetings and organizes annual events to strengthen connections to community organizations and groups
  • Sinai Health System supports the employment efforts of new Canadians and participates in the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council's Mentoring Partnership, offering job readiness activities such as interview coaching and resume writing -- the organization also partners with Career Bridge to offer internships to new Canadians and supports Ryerson University's Internationally Educated Social Work Professionals Bridging Program
  • Sinai Health System launched the "Are You an an Ally" campaign to educate employees on how to act as an ally for persons with mental health and addictions issues, racialized people, people with physical disabilities, LGBT people, and people who are trans, intersex, and two-spirit -- the organization is also planning to expand the campaign to include gender (women), Aboriginal peoples and seniors
