1.0 Participant Code of Conduct
Archi·North institutes a Code of Conduct, policies, and boundaries to ensure that participants and campus team members are safe, and the program objectives are met. As a result, the rules that we have in place are all extremely important, and all participants must follow them.
1.1 Respect for Self and Others
Every participant shall:
- Respect the rights and dignity of all members of the Archi·North camp.
- Demonstrate responsibility, recognizing that words and behaviours are an
example to other participants.
- Demonstrate consideration, integrity, due diligence, and good judgment in all interpersonal relationships and interactions.
- Consider the physical and emotional safety of others, and support members of the camp in their goals and efforts.
- Maintain open and honest communications.
- Be friendly, courteous, and kind, encouraging the participation of others while being sensitive to the different capacities of camp members.
1.2 Safety and Security
It is important that participants behave responsibly and do not compromise their own personal safety or endanger the safety of others. The Archi·North team reserves the right to determine what constitutes unsafe practices, and participants are required to follow the instructions of the Archi·North instructors.
1.3 Drugs and Alcohol
Archi·North has a zero tolerance on the consumption and/or possession of recreational or illegal drugs and/or alcohol, which are both unlawful and strictly forbidden.
Archi·North has a zero tolerance on participants carrying, or having in their possession or belongings, any weapon as defined in the Criminal Code of Canada. This includes, but is not limited to any firearm, weapon, imitation of a weapon, ammunition, hunting knife, prohibited device or dangerous chemicals including explosives and fireworks.
1.5 Lost, Stolen or Damaged Property
The Archi·North program is not liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or theft of personal property, or for damage or destruction of such property.
1.6 Sexual Harassment / Abuse
All members of the Archi·North camp have a right to a safe and supportive environment that respects the dignity and self-esteem of all.
Sexual harassment can be regarded as an unwarranted intrusion upon the sexual dignity of a person, and it can include jokes, innuendos, insults, sexist remarks, derogatory or pornographic pictures, leering, touching, or kissing. It is any conduct, comment, gesture or contact of a sexual nature, whether on a one-time basis or in a series of incidents, that could cause offence, embarrassment, or humiliation, or that could be perceived by the individual as placing a condition of a sexual nature on their acceptance, involvement or inclusion. Sexual harassment may be directed at any person, including participants and campus team members.
Behaviour which constitutes sexual harassment or abuse is neither condoned nor tolerated.
1.7 Harassment, Bullying and Violence
The following behaviour will not be tolerated within the Archi·North program, on host university/program property or at any program-sponsored or related activities:
- Any physical assault, threats of assault, intimidation, or bullying.
- Any jokes, slurs, remarks, comments, or any other behaviour of a derogatory or oppressive nature relating to another person’s religion, creed, race, gender, sexual orientation, colour, ancestry, ethnicity, or disability.
- Any abuse of any nature including emotional or psychological abuse, verbal violence and/or social exclusion.
- Vandalism or destruction of property belonging to the host university, Archi·North, or any other person or entity.
- Hate-motivated comments or behaviour.
- Verbal or written statements that could be construed as threats of violence.
1.8 Leaving Campus
Once the program commences, no participant is permitted to leave campus or a
scheduled program activity during camp hours without explicit permission from an authorized Archi·North team member and signed permission from a parent/legal guardian.
