At the intersection of mind and action, Ryerson is on a transformative path to become Canada’s leading comprehensive innovation university. Integral to this path is the placement of equity, diversity and inclusion as fundamental to our institutional culture. Our current academic plan outlines each as core values and we work to embed them in all that we do.
Ryerson University welcomes those who have demonstrated a commitment to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion and will assist us to expand our capacity for diversity in the broadest sense. In addition, to correct the conditions of disadvantage in employment in Canada, we encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples, Indigenous peoples of North America, racialized persons, persons with disabilities, and those who identify as women and/or 2SLGBTQ+. Please note that all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, applications from Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
As an employer, we are working towards a people first culture and are proud to have been selected as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers and a Greater Toronto’s Top Employer for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

About the The National Institute on Ageing (NIA)
The National Institute on Ageing (NIA) is a Ryerson University think tank focused on the realities of Canada’s ageing population. The NIA aims to improve outcomes for Canadians as they age through better healthcare and retirement planning policies, as well as encouraging Canadians to make better, more informed decisions about their health and wealth. Our mission is to help governments, healthcare systems, the financial sector, businesses and Canadian families to enhance successful ageing across the life course and to make Canada the best place to grow up and grow old.
Bringing these communities and stakeholders together and advocating for evidence-based seniors’ policy initiatives are at the heart of the NIA’s work as Canada’s only think tank dedicated to policy solutions for an ageing population. The NIA works at the intersections of healthcare, financial security, and social well-being.
