Some students have a very different education experience from the majority of Ontarians. Faced with discrimination, or a lack of awareness and respect for cultural and religious diversity, the impact on these students can be long lasting. How are school boards working to create an inclusive and diverse environment for all students? What does the Ministry of Education require, and what recourse do students have? Join us to explore the legal obligations and opportunities at this critical program.
