Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism

The Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance (HPHA) is committed to becoming a more safe, equitable and inclusive healthcare organization for all. We are committed to addressing all forms of discrimination, including anti-racism, gender bias, and rights of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities.

At HPHA, all people matter.

The HPHA is committed to becoming a more equitable and inclusive healthcare organization for all.

We are committed to addressing all forms of discrimination including, but not limited to, anti-racism, gender bias, and rights of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities. As an organization dedicated to providing exceptional people-centered care, we must understand the experiences and views of every person who visits, works for, volunteers or receives care at our hospitals and make the necessary changes to ensure everyone’s needs are met and respected. A high-quality health care system starts with a culture that promotes equity and reduces disparities. 

Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge and give thanks for the land on which we gather as being the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee/People of the Long House and the Anishinaabe.

We recognize the First Peoples’ continued stewardship of the land and water, and that this territory is subject to the Dish with One Spoon Wampum under which multiple nations agreed to care for the land and resources by the Great Lakes in peace.

We also acknowledge and recognize the treaties signed in regard to this land including Treaty #29 and Treaty #45 1/2. Our roles and shared responsibilities as treaty people mean we are committed to moving forward in reconciliation with
gratitude and respect with all First Nations, Metis, Inuit and Indigenous Peoples. We commit to the following action: sharing resources that explore the rich and diverse cultures, voices, experiences and histories of First Nations, Inuit and
Metis people.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism Framework

The development of our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism (DEIAR) framework is a long-term commitment, which requires hard work and challenging conversations. This framework is a living document that will change based on our evolving knowledge and the feedback we receive from our patients, families, staff, physicians and the communities we serve.
