Standing Up for Inclusion and Diversity

Oxford is committed to developing an inclusive and respectful culture – at our workplace and buildings we manage. And we are proud of the actions we are taking to bring this commitment to life.

Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga, Canada participates in the region’s “Safe Place” Program as part of their continued commitment to inclusivity in the workplace and to demonstrate support to the LGBTQIA+ community. A Safe Place sticker is placed prominently on the front window to notify members of the LGBTQIA+ community that this business is committed to providing safety to the victim by allowing them to enter their business, provide them with shelter and by assisting the victim in contacting police to report hate-motivated crimes and incidents.

Shopping malls across the Canadian portfolio, including Upper Canada Mall (Newmarket), Yorkdale Shopping Centre (Toronto), and Kingsway Mall (Edmonton) opened universal and all-gender washrooms. The washrooms provide inclusive options for everyone, including transgender people and people of diverse gender identities and expressions.
