Our Equity Principles

  • Collect and analyze data relating to race, ethnicity, and indigeneity to better understand the families we are servicing.
  • Promote an increased awareness and understanding about issues of inequity and oppression.
  • Create a learning environment so that we can better support and collaborate together; and learn and unlearn from each other.
  • Establish spaces where oppressive statements, biases, and assumptions can be challenged in a way that supports our continued journey towards equity.
  • Identify challenges and develop strategies in implementing and practicing from an equity framework.
  • Act as allies to marginalized groups when inequitable practices are identified.
  • Commit to self-evaluation, critical self-reflection and reflexivity.
  • Commit to and implement the race equity practices created by the One Vision, One Voice project.


“The Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society will ensure that service provision to children and families takes into consideration identity characteristics and regional differences.  KHCAS will ensure that an individual’s culture; heritage; traditions; and connection to community are taken into consideration when providing service to Indigenous children and families.”KHCAS Identity, Diversity & Inclusion Policy

“The Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society is a welcoming and inclusive environment dedicated to providing a harassment-free and safer space experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion.  We do not tolerate harassment in any form.”KHCAS Safer Space Policy
