June - Pride Month
Pride Flag

PRIDE month is an opportunity to focus on the diverse voices and experiences of Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (2SLGBTQ+) folks in our community.  The poet Audre Lorde said, “It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.” Please join with Canadore College in recognizing, accepting and celebrating diversity for PRIDE month.

Access and Inclusion can help facilitate a name change request on your behalf.  This can be processed prior to your program beginning, or at any point throughout your time with us at Canadore.  It is extremely important to us to ensure that you are identified properly in our hallways, classrooms, and all other extensions of our Canadore community. 

When successfully carried out, your dead name/legal name will be changed to reflect your preferred name on all of your front facing online learning components.

This will include:

  • Class lists
  • Discussion Boards
  • Drop Boxes
  • iLearn student profile

 

Note:

  • Additionally, one’s preferred name can be reflected on your bus pass/student card! If you’re able to login to Self Service ahead of your program start, please update your account information and your bus pass/student ID will be produced with your preferred name.  If you weren’t able to do so ahead of time, please reach out to Access and Inclusion and we’ll help you to be re-issued a new ID card.
  • If a student decides to change their name legally our admissions team can facilitate a system wide change for all of their college documentation (transcripts, diplomas, etc.) – at that point in time, Access and Inclusion can help facilitate this process with student consent.
