At HRI, we strive to foster Anti-Oppression, Equity and Inclusion (AOEI), because we believe living these values is the most powerful platform for social change. We believe that people and organizations thrive when we embrace the richness of the human experience and invite all voices to contribute to a shared goal.

We are passionate about our vision: “No life held back or cut short by mental illness or addiction.” This vision encompasses everyone, including (but not limited to) First Nations, Métis, and Inuit, people with disabilities, people of all cultural, religious, racial, and ethnic backgrounds, people of all income and education levels, people of all ages, non-binary and gender nonconforming people, women, and two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual (2SLGBTQQIA) people.

As a research organization, we are working continuously to move AOEI values into action through our organizational culture, policies, and research activities.

We want to know how we can do better. If you note any inaccuracies or opportunities for improvement on this page, please contact us.
