Diversity and Confidentiality

A Note on Diversity

image53

We are strong believers that diversity enriches all of our lives. Because of this, we try to celebrate the strengths that are brought to our lives through our differences and similarities, including ethnic and cultural background, gender, class, age, sex, sexual orientation, nationality, colour, race, religion, marital status, physical or mental abilities, socioeconomic status, or any other preference or personal characteristic, condition or status. Together, we are stronger.

Confidentiality Policy

 We are committed to client confidentiality as a part of ethical practice and take efforts to ensure that all client information is kept secure and confidential. However, there may be times we are required by law to release information. These times are:

  • When a minor is at risk of abuse or immediate harm
  • When a client is in severe and imminent danger of harming themselves or others
  • In a medical emergency
  • When subpoenaed by a court of law

At all other times, client information will only be released with the written consent of the client.
