RESCON committed to ensuring the industry remains inclusive

VAUGHAN, ONT. — The Residential Construction Council of Ontario (RESCON) says it will continue to embrace diversity, equity and inclusion as key priorities in the building industry as it celebrates Black History Month.

Over the past few years, RESCON has undertaken a number of initiatives including forming an Anti-Racism Roundtable in 2020 to combat anti-Black racism in the construction industry by raising awareness, creating and sharing resources and engaging with the next generation of construction workers. Throughout the month of February, RESCON will be sharing some outcomes achieved since launching the roundtable on Twitter.

In 2021, developers, contractors, associations and workers from the residential construction industry signed the Toronto Declaration of Inclusive Workplaces and Communities.

RESCON is also planning to host an event in recognition of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in March. More details will be shared in the coming weeks.

“Black History Month is an opportunity to recognize the history, heritage and contributions of Black Canadians to our country and the construction industry here in Ontario,” said RESCON president Richard Lyall in a statement. “RESCON, along with its employer and labour partners, are committed to ensuring that the residential construction industry remains welcoming and inclusive for people of all backgrounds.”
