For many years, York University has had a policy of employment equity
including affirmative action for women. Recently, York has included
racial/visible minorities, persons with disabilities and aboriginal
peoples in its affirmative action programme. Persons who are members of
one or more of these three groups are encouraged to self-identify during
the selectio process. Please note that candidates from these three
groups will be considered within the priorities of the affirmative
action programme only if they self identify. The Department of
Languages, Literatures and Linguistics welcomes applications from women,
racial/visible minorities, persons with disabilities and aboriginal
peoples. The affirmative action programme can be obtained by calling
the affirmative action office at (416) 736-5236. In accordance with
Canadian immigration requirements, priority will be given to Canadian
citizens and permanent residents of Canada.
