Social Impact

The social dimension of sustainability is crucial. Ensuring that people have equal and just access to community opportunities, resources, and safe spaces to live and connect is paramount. Fairmont Royal York has renewed our commitment to social impact programs across the hotel, including:

* A progressive commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, including a strong focus on developing and promoting women leaders

* Proud participation in LGBTQ+ cultural events at the hotel and across our city – and an active culture of inclusion and safety for both colleagues and guests

* An active partnership in the IGLTA (International LGBTQ+ Travel Association)

* Training for all colleagues to identify the signs of human trafficking and child exploitation

* An ongoing partnership with Make-A-Wish Canada – Fairmont Royal York hosts and donates to Trees of Joy each year, granting children with life-threatening illnesses their most heartfelt wish

We acknowledge the land on which Fairmont Royal York stands is situated on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis people.
