Canadian Freelance Guild Commitment to Equity and Accessibility
CFG recognizes the everyday challenges, opportunities and vigilance needed to ensure meaningful and equitable participation for all our members. This goal requires ongoing attention, education, good faith and openness from all involved.
As a labour association, we strive to ensure that members and fellow participants feel welcome, and that our services, events, workshops and meetings are logistically and culturally accessible.
CFG adheres to the Diversity Statement of our parent union, CWA Canada.
Accessibility for people who use wheelchairs
We encourage all CFG members to be aware of the spaces they use and choose for work, meetings, social and community events. To create full and equal opportunity of access and participation, we need to ensure that both the physical facilities (entrances, buildings, washrooms, fire and safety evacuation routes, transit options) and the cultural spaces are accessible and welcoming to people who use wheelchairs, or who may have other visible or hidden physical accommodation needs.
Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ Positive Space
Positive Spaces are welcoming environments where Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Pansexual, Genderqueer (LGBTQ+) people are able to participate with safety, dignity and respect, social and professional inclusion, and without erasure, discrimination or harassment.
