What changed on the Census since its initial launch?

Following a comprehensive review by the U of T Student Equity Census Advisory Roundtable, and looking closely at student feedback, some of the questions and categories on the Census have changed. The revised version of the Census launched on December 1, 2021.

These changes included:

  • A more detailed list of categories for the question on racial and ethnocultural identity
  • Revised language associated with questions about disability, gender identity and sexual orientation, with new categories added

Only minor changes were made for the 2022-23 academic year. If you completed the Census already, you may wish to review your responses to ensure they best reflect your identity. You are invited to change and to resubmit your responses anytime.

We’ll continue to review the Census regularly to make sure it adequately reflects our community. However, we don’t anticipate changes will happen as often moving forward.
