Ignoring differences may mean ignoring legitimate needs - Ignoring differences and refusing to accommodate them is a denial of equal access and opportunity - Societys disadvantages are assumed by 4 groups: native people, visible minorities, disabled persons, women - Woman = revised approach to the role women play in the workforce - Native people = effective and relevant education and training, accommodation to cultural and geographic realities, primary voice in the design of the education, training, and funding programs for their benefit, meaningful support systems, and delivery of services through native run institutions - Visible minorities = attack on racism. Adequate language training, counseling to teach and assist them to adjust to Canadian culture - Disabled person = full accommodation and widest range of human and technical supports - Achievement of equality double edged approach: 1 concerns those pre employment conditions that affect accessto employment. 2 concerns those conditions in the workplace that militate against equal participation in employment. - Systemic discrimination impact of behaviour.
