CRC Equity Targets

Based on the population of Canada, the CRC’s 2029 equity targets are as follows:

  • Indigenous peoples – 4.9%
  • Persons with disabilities – 7.5%
  • Racialized minorities – 22%
  • Women – 50.9%

NSCAD University, as a small institution (with fewer than 40 chairs), commits to meet the established targets for larger institutions.
