Advisor’s Procedures & Limitations

The Harassment and Discrimination Advisor is a resource to the BCIT community involving issues and concerns relating to discrimination, bullying and harassment.

The Harassment and Discrimination Advisor follows the procedure set out in BCIT Procedure 7507-PR1Harassment & Discrimination. 

The Advisor is not an advocate or representative for any party to a complaint.

When the Advisor becomes involved in a complaint of discrimination or bullying and harassment, emphasis is placed on the pursuit of an informal, safe and mediated resolution to the complaint, to the satisfaction of all parties.

When such an outcome is not available, the Advisor may investigate the merits of the complaint and provide an opinion on whether discrimination or bullying and harassment occurred, and make recommendations where appropriate including recommendations for discipline.
