More than 7,000 people shared thoughts on upcoming anti-racism legislation

Feedback from people in British Columbia about how upcoming anti-racism legislation should address systemic racism is available online in the form of “what we heard” reports.

The feedback was collected in 2023 through an extensive engagement process. It included an online questionnaire, discussions with racialized people led by community organizations, and targeted consultation and co-development with the First Nations Leadership Council, the Alliance of BC Modern Treaty Nations, BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres and Métis Nation British Columbia. The aim of this engagement was to hear from people how government should address systemic racism in its programs and services, and remove existing barriers.
