Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Where everyone is acknowledged, valued and respected.

SickKids is committed to championing equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility in our care, research and education initiatives. We are committed to being a safe space for all patients and families, staff, learners and volunteers, where everyone can feel acknowledged, valued and respected as part of our equity, diversity and inclusion efforts.

SickKids operates on the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. We are committed to working toward new relationships that include First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples, and are grateful for the opportunity to share this land in caring for children and their families.
