The Canada Research Chairs Program requires institutions to collect self-identification data from all applicants, following the program’s best practices. This data is important to the University’s ability to ensure that researchers from diverse groups are able to benefit from participation in the program. All applicants to this CRC opportunity are required to complete the University of Toronto’s Employment Equity Survey.

Applicants are encouraged to self-identify in any of the groups where applicable. While completion of the survey is required, providing answers to the individual survey questions is voluntary, and applicants can log a response indicating that they decline the survey. If you have already completed the survey, thank you; your responses will be included in the aggregated results. Applicants who have not completed the survey will not be considered for this CRC opportunity.

Any information directly related to you is confidential and cannot be accessed by search committees or human resources staff. Aggregated and anonymized data regarding the applicant pool will be reported only to the chair of the selection committee, the committee’s equity advisor, and a small number of staff members in the Division of the Vice-President, Research and Innovation, for purposes of program administration and to meet reporting requirements.
