Our Diversity and Inclusion Statement

We are diverse individuals of all ages, colours, ethnicities, nationalities, faiths and beliefs, cultures, abilities, socio-economic and education levels, sexual orientations and gender identities.

We communicate in many languages.

We value and celebrate diversity and inclusion. We define diversity broadly and encompass many individual attributes. We create an environment that actively embraces diversity and inclusion by recognizing the value in the uniqueness of all individuals.

We strive to reflect the diversity of our neighbourhoods in our membership, our Community Boards, our volunteers and our staff.

We respect all neighbours. We expect that all who come to our neighbourhood houses and camps, all those who provide or receive services, will extend the same respect to all.

We acknowledge that we live, work, and play on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples.
