Canadian Creative Industries Release New Code of Conduct

TORONTO, ON (March 8, 2018) — A new Canadian Creative Industries Code of Conduct has been to help prevent and respond to harassment including sexual harassment, discrimination, bullying and violence.

The Code represents a commitment by engaged stakeholders to shift the culture, to prevent and respond to harassment including sexual harassment, discrimination, bullying and violence and to ensure every workplace is one where safety, respect and professionalism are the norm.

The Code reinforces the concepts of zero tolerance, proportional consequences, consent-based interactions and no retaliation. It calls on signatories to encourage good-faith reporting and timely investigations. The Code demonstrates our commitment to action and is intended to be a living document that will be regularly informed by best practice.

The Code follows from work launched last year at a creative industries round-table collaborating on an industry-wide response to harassment, discrimination, bullying, and violence of all kinds. In addition, other industry groups are working to create more effective reporting mechanisms, and on multi-level education and training programs.

The following organizations have agreed to the Code and others will join as they review the document within their own organizations:
