Safe, Inclusive and Equitable Schools

Lakehead District School Board and Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board are committed to operating safe and caring schools, and to maintaining learning and working environments free from discrimination based on gender identity, gender expression, and the other grounds under the Ontario Human Rights Code.

Discrimination is contrary to our values, school and board policies, and the Code. Anti-trans discrimination and harassment create toxic learning environments for our students and staff, and will not be tolerated.

We support the human rights of transgender, transitioning, and gender non-conforming students and staff, and their right to learn and work in safe, inclusive and equitable schools.
