OBA Diversity Statement

"The Ontario Bar Association (the "Association") demonstrates leadership in the legal community and the justice sector through its equity, diversity, and inclusion strategies and by actively nurturing an inclusive and welcoming professional network and work environment for its members, employees, volunteers, clients, and partners.

In furtherance of its vision, mission, and strategic priorities, the Association promotes principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion through its advocacy, programming, internal policies, and governance structures.

The Association's approach to equity, diversity, and inclusion will (i) affirm its commitment to reducing barriers to access to justice, legal services, legal institutions, and legal practice that are experienced by equity-seeking groups; and, (ii) be developed to reflect the evolving and intersecting nature of equity issues."
