Achieve your EDI goals with the 2023 Diversity and Inclusion Calendar!

Posted On: January 23, 2023

The Ontario CLRI at Bruyere and the Ontario CLRI at RIA is excited to share the 2023 print Diversity and Inclusion Calendar. Our print calendars are available in English, and for the first time ever, in French!

The calendar features religious and spiritual days of significance, cultural celebrations, awareness days and health promotion days. Learning about the many cultures, religions and days of significance is fundamental to inclusion, and this calendar can help you achieve your EDI goals in your home.

Take some time to explore the dates within the calendar! Staying aware of these days and scheduling activities around them will help you create an inclusive home, 365 days a year. You can also follow the links to learn more about each date in our digital version.

This calendar has been developed as a resource for LTC teams to demonstrate commitment to honouring and celebrating diverse communities, cultures and faiths of those who live, visit and work in LTC homes.

We have been hearing from a number of organizations, including LTC homes and hospitals that are using the calendar regularly to support their planning, their learning, and it is helping to guide their communications both internally and externally about days of significance.

“At the City of Toronto, Seniors Services and Long-Term Care utilize the CLRI Diversity Calendar alongside the Days of Significance Calendar for the Toronto Public Service to advance Equity, Diversity and Inclusion when communicating to stakeholders, in divisional communication and when planning resident and client focused events and celebrations. We have very diverse LTC residents, community-based programs clients and staff members, and these tools are helping us support divisional initiatives such as the Confronting Anti-Black Racism in the Workplace Action Plan, Indigenous Cultural Competency and Advancing the Truth & Reconciliation Action Plan, and Leading & Learning with Pride: A Tool Kit, Video, and Campaign to enhance support for 2SLGBTQI+ Seniors.”
