Canada Research Chairs

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

The University of Toronto’s Canada Research Chair program is administered by the University in partnership with nine affiliated hospitals in the Toronto Academic Health Sciences Network (TASHN).

This website complements the information provided on the University’s website and provides information specific to The Hospital for Sick Children, including postings for available Canada Research Chair opportunities at The Hospital for Sick Children.

The Hospital for Sick Children is working with its TASHN partners to develop an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan (to be released December 15, 2017). Please consult the CRC website to learn more about the Federal program’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Practices that aims to increase transparency within the program and which also requires firm targets to increase nationally the number of chair holders from the four designated groups as defined by the CRC program: women; Aboriginal peoples; persons with disabilities; and members of visible minorities.

See below for a list of Canada Research Chairs, held by SickKids personnel.

Our Commitment to Diversity
SickKids is strongly committed to diversity within its community and welcomes applications from visible minority group members, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, members of sexual minority groups and others who may contribute to diversity within our organization.
