The Waterloo Catholic District School Board is committed to a workplace environment free of harassment or discrimination in which all Board employees and trustees are treated with respect and dignity, in accordance with its shared beliefs, mission, vision and guiding principles found in Sharing Our Journey (2002-2006) and under the current Human Rights Code of Ontario:
“We, as a Christ-Centred learning community that participates in the mission of the Catholic Church, believe that:

Our community respects, affirms and supports the dignity and well being of all;
Our community contributes to the transformations of our world in love, dignity, and justice.”

Sharing our Journey, 2002-2006
“It is public policy in Ontario to recognize the dignity and worth of every person and to provide for equal rights and opportunities without discrimination that is contrary to law, and having as its aim the creation of a climate of understanding and mutual respect for the dignity and worth of each person so that each person feels a part of the community and able to contribute fully to the development and well-being of the community and province.”
