The provincial government has asked that all Ontario universities and colleges have a freedom of speech policy in place by Jan. 1, 2019. In response, a working group has been established at York to consult with the University community and prepare a draft document for approval.
The working group has created a dedicated web page accessible from the homepage of the University Secretariat.
There, you will find the following:
- the mandate, membership and resources, with an appendix linked to relevant legislation and York policies;
- a form to share your thoughts about the initiative and respond to questions posed by the working group; and
- a link to the working group’s Facebook page where you can submit comments.
Members of the community can access a live video conference of the public consultation scheduled for Nov. 8 at 6 p.m. by visiting yorku.zoom.us/j/9590936172 and using Meeting ID 959 093 6172.
