What is it like working at the Centre for Independent Living in Toronto? Check out CILT’s Employee Value Proposition (EVP).
At an individual level: the opportunity to influence/make decisions at all staff levels.
At a broader level: an organization that is respected for collaborating with people with disabilities to advocate for equity through the principles of IL.
We are committed to leading with empathy, curiosity, and humility.
Empathy: we seek to understand what’s important to the staff who make CILT’s work happen.
Curiosity: we value the ideas, contributions, and strengths of staff at all levels and collaborate to develop solutions. Different perspectives and effort are celebrated as enthusiastically as achieving organizational goals.
Humility: we seek and reflect on feedback on ourselves. Growth at CILT is about learning, improving, and building relationships.
We support people as whole persons; professional and personal. Taking time to focus on well-being, rest, and rejuvenation is as important as working hard to reach organizational goals.
We offer flexibility and hybrid work that balances your personal life with CILT’s operational needs.
Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDE+A)
Disability inclusion is an inherent core value at CILT. We also strive to be an inclusive, and equitable workplace for other equity-deserving groups, including groups of diverse ethnicity, gender/sexual identity, and race
IDE+A is not just a check box, it is our organizational journey that is beginning with dialogue, a critical look at our policies and practices, and a commitment to action.
While we recognize and celebrate the wonderful and diverse perspectives of each other, we share a collective passion for our mission, our consumers, and the IL philosophy.
We treat each other with respect and kindness, and listen to and appreciate each other.
We keep connected by purposefully gathering for virtual (and eventually in person) all staff events.
High Ethical Standards & Integrity
We have a clear mission, vision, values, policies, and standards of conduct, and strive to embed them in our actions.
We operate according to fair and transparent standards and go above and beyond to ensure decisions are based on what is right, not just what is legal/compliant with regulatory requirements. Even when no-one is looking.
We lead by example, take responsibility for our actions, take steps to address mistakes, and take action on unethical behaviour.
