Position summary

The College acknowledges that many diverse communities have experienced significant health disparities when compared to the general population, such as sexual/gender diverse, racialized, and neurodiverse individuals, persons living with disabilities, or children and youth. We appreciate there are many other communities affected by health disparities and recognize the importance of intersectionality. These disparities are rooted in social and cultural issues that have served to disadvantage these communities and perpetuate harm through discrimination. The College embraces the opportunity to learn from these communities, with the goal of ensuring that the services we deliver are safer and more accessible. 

The complaints and practice investigations department is seeking a DEI lead who will be responsible for humanizing all aspects of the complaint investigation experience; ensuring that patients and/or their representatives feel safe to actively participate in a complaint process and that those involved in the process have a deep awareness and familiarity with the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

The diversity, equity and inclusion lead works within the complaints and practice investigations (CPI) team and reports to the deputy registrar, complaints and practice investigations. This role collaborates with other members of the team, other departments, and external partners to execute on the specific recommendations of the College’s external reviews related of the complaints process, other reports such as Health Equity for Sexual and Gender Diverse Communities (Believe Me) and the new Health Professions and Occupations Act (HPOA). The role will lead the transformation of the College’s complaint process to one that meets the needs of all sexual orientations/gender identities, racialized populations, children/youth and other protected rights, emphasized by the language in the HPOA.

As part of our commitment to employment equity, we encourage applications from individuals with lived experience as a member of a historically underrepresented community, including Indigenous Peoples, racialized individuals, persons with disabilities, and 2SLGBTQ+ individuals. The College acknowledges that not everyone is able to publicly disclose these identities and experiences, nor is this disclosure required. However, if comfortable, applicants can self-identify in their cover letter or in communication with the human resources team. The compensation range for this position is $80,216 to $100,270 per year.
