Equity Lens

The Roundtable on Access Equity and Human Rights developed an Equity Lens to be used by Council and the Toronto Public Service when reviewing or preparing reports. This tool will guide staff and Council in removing human rights barriers as they plan, develop and evaluate policies, services and programs. Guidelines (PDF) are being used by City Divisions to include equity impact statements and equity analyses in significant policy and program reports to City Council.
