Multifaith E-Calendar

At UTSC we recognize our diverse community and are committed to supporting and promoting various observances.

To assist you with finding various religious, spiritual, and cultural days observed around the world, our office uses this interactive Multifaith e-calendar. If you would like to receive a print copy of the calendar, please contact the EDIO and we would be happy to provide one for you.

Accommodations for Religious Observances for students

Students at UTSC hold a wide range of religious beliefs. In accordance with the University Policy on Scheduling of Classes and Examinations and Other Accommodations for Religious Observances (June 2005) reasonable accommodation must be arranged for students who observe religious holy days other than those already accommodated by ordinary scheduling and statutory holidays.

Accommodations for term work in a course are the responsibility of the instructor. If the date of a final examination falls on a holy day observed by a student, the student should submit, through eService, a request for accommodation no later than two full weeks before the commencement of examinations. For more information on the University of Toronto Scarborough ACADEMIC HANDBOOK for Faculty and Staff, please click here.

This will normally be granted with an explanation. A ready reference on issues related to this topic can be found on the Accommodations for Religious Observances website.

Inclusive Employer Guide

The Inclusive Employer Guide helps managers familiarize themselves with the meanings and traditions that are celebrated by many in our community. We encourage everyone to update their scheduling tools annually to reflect these dates. Avoid booking meetings and scheduling events on these dates to the greatest extent possible.
