RBCo Policies

Royal Bridge College is committed to a safe and welcoming learning environment for all staff and students.

Discrimination and Harassment

Discrimination is a distinction made on the basis of a person’s race, gender, religion, colour, ancestry, national or ethnic origin, physical disability, mental disability, family status, marital status, political belief, or sexual orientation that creates a disadvantage to that person. Discrimination may include but is not limited to:
  • words, gestures, actions or practical jokes, with the result of humiliating, alarming or abusing another person
  • distribution or display of offensive pictures or materials.
Harassment is a form of discrimination that consists of unwelcome words or conduct. In order to be guilty of harassment, the person engaging in this behaviour must know or ought reasonably to know that the behaviour is unwelcome. Harassment may be accompanied by expressed or implied threats or promises of rewards.

Sexual harassment

Sexual harassment is behaviour or comment of a sexual nature, which is known or ought reasonably to be known to be unwelcome. Both males and females can be victims of sexual harassment by either sex. A consensual relationship, a gesture of affection between friends, or a guided classroom discussion dealing with sex or sexuality does not constitute sexual harassment. Sexual harassment may include, but is not limited to:
  • patting, touching or other physical contact
  • leering, staring or making sexual gestures
  • demands for sexual favours
  • unwanted sexual invitations
  • unwanted questions or comments of a sexual nature
  • display or distribution of sexual or offensive pictures or materials.
  • texts, emails, sharing of material on line and abuse of social media
Any conduct of this nature will be treated very seriously, involve police and could result in dismissal from the college.
