Policies and Corporate Legal

Policy Renewal Project

The Legal and Compliance Department has initiated a review of RRC Polytech’s policies. The purpose of the Policy Renewal Project is to ensure that the College policies:

  1. Set and communicate expectations as per College’s mandate and strategic plan
  2. Are consistent, efficient, and effective in mitigating and managing institutional risks
  3. Are reflective of institutional needs and processes.

The Policy renewal project is a work in progress, and RRC Polytech will continue to develop and post policies on an ongoing basis, therefore some legacy policies may not yet reflect the revised format or content as prescribed by G1 – Policies Development Framework, which governs the initiation and process of review of RRC Polytech’s policies. Policies will be updated or added once they have been reviewed and revised.

These College policies are derived from the RRC Polytech Board of Governors Policies that have established the largest values, policies and standards for RRC Polytech. The Board instructs the President through its policies that prescribe organizational results to be achieved, and describe organizational situations and actions to be avoided.
