Code of Conduct

The Association of Canadian Publishers (ACP) is committed to providing an environment in which all members, board members, staff, and other members of the ACP community are treated with respect and dignity. We are committed to inclusivity and the reduction of barriers due to discrimination, including, but not limited to, on the grounds of race, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, gender identity or expression, age, colour, disability or political or religious belief.

Harassment, including bullying, discrimination, and personal and sexual harassment will not be tolerated from any person participating in ACP programs, meetings, events, or other activities related to the association (an “ACP Event”).

Harassment can take many forms, but all can be defined as any unwelcome action by any person, whether verbal or physical, on a single or repeated basis, which harms, humiliates, embarrasses, insults or degrades, and where the behaviour is known or ought reasonably to be known to be unwelcome.

All persons participating in an ACP Event are expected to


A person violating this Code of Conduct may be required to leave an ACP Event, and may lose the privilege of attending ACP Events.
