Queen's Equity Appointments Process (QEAP)

New Faculty Appointments

The Equity Office is mandated to collect, track and report on equity data as it pertains to the faculty applicants. Under the Queen's University Faculty Association (QUFA) collective agreement, the equity data is further used to inform the Employment Equity Representative (EE Rep) during the hiring process and the Equity Office in completing the annual compliance reports to the Joint Committee for the Administration of the Agreement (JCAA). Please refer to Article 24 of the QUFA CA found below:

Article 24 on Employment Equity, QUFA Collective Agreement

The Queen's Equity Appointments Process (QEAP) has replaced the Faculty Appointments Database (FAD). The EE Rep will need to begin the process by contacting the Equity Office for initial access to the application.

New Staff Appointments

In Fall 2017, the Principal and Vice-Principals approved the implementation of an equity hiring process for Staff recruitment and, although participation in the equity process was not mandatory in 2018, units were highly encouraged to engage in the process.  Mandatory implementation of an employment equity program for Staff began in January 2019.
