  • We recognize and take seriously our special responsibility as members of the legal profession to protect the dignity of all individuals, and to respect and uphold human rights laws in force in Ontario;
  • We support a commitment to reconciliation for Indigenous peoples andacknowledge that we are collectively responsible to support improved relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Ontario and Canada; and,
  • We are committed to our obligation to promote equality, diversity and inclusion generally and in our behaviour towards colleagues, employees, clients and the public.

We are committed to both the letter and spirit of human rights legislation.
