In 2008, Mayor William J. Healy II merged the City of Canton's Fair Housing Assistance Program, Equal Employment Opportunity Office, and Minority/Women's Business Enterprise Program to increase government efficiency and improve customer service to Canton residents.


The primary mission of our newly-created department is to ensure that those who work and live in the City of Canton are treated fairly and equally under the law.
