Willowbank is located on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Ojibway/Chippewa and Haudenosaunee peoples. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum agreement. Today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.

Willowbank recently updated our Equity, Diversity, and Inclusiveness Policy. Willowbank School of Restoration Arts (referred to as ‘Willowbank’) values and promotes human rights, adheres to the Ontario Human Rights Code and commits to foster a college community that enables full participation of all students and employees to study and work. Willowbank celebrates the diversity of its students and employees and sees diversity as a strength.
Willowbank recognizes that society and post-secondary institutions historically and systemically have marginalized equity-seeking groups. We acknowledge that this marginalization continues to hinder an individual’s ability to fully, freely, and equitably participate within an academic institution and in society. We strive to ensure socioeconomic status does not hinder someone’s ability to access and be successful in post-secondary education.
As such, the College commits to identify, prevent, and eliminate discrimination and harassment in all its forms with respect to race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, religion, political belief, marital status or family status of that person or that group or class of persons.
Willowbank commits to uphold the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion to foster a barrier-free, respectful, and welcoming learning and working environment.
