Join the conversation about anti-racism data collection in BC and help shape the future of BC's Anti-Racism Data Legislation.

Racialized community members are invited to come together in a safe space to speak about identity, share previous experiences dealing with government agencies, and express hopes and concerns about how race-based data will be collected, used, and shared by the BC Government.

Honorariums of 25$ are available for consultation participants.

This community consultation will be hosted online in Chinese and Arabic languages. This session is in Arabic.

Further details about the event will be provided via email to participants once registration is complete. Participation in the community consultations is anonymous and confidential, at no point will your name or any other identifying information be made public. Consent can be withdrawn at any time throughout the consultation process.

What is the BC Government’s plan?

The BC Government wants to help end systemic racism, hate, and discrimination, and to make the province more equitable and inclusive to everyone. In order to do that it is important to better gather data from Indigenous, Black, and other people of colour about their experiences when accessing government services such as policing, health care and education.

What are you being asked to do?

The Inter-Cultural Association (ICA) and the Community Social Planning Council (CSPC) will lead the meetings. During the meeting you are invited:

  • To speak about your identity. This will help us understand how people in B.C. prefer to identify or represent themselves.
  • To share your previous experiences sharing personal information with government agencies. This will help us understand people’s comfort levels with sharing information in different situations, such as for research purposes or to access public services like health, education or justice so that we can build better collection methods.
  • To share your experiences and hopes for how the data will be used so that we can work towards racial equity in priority areas.

Contact Information This engagement process is led by the Ministry of Attorney General and the Ministry of Citizens’ Services. If you have any questions or concerns about the process, you can submit these to multiculturalism@gov.bc.ca.

The consultation events are being led by the Inter-Cultural Association (ICA). If you have any questions about the consultation events please contact:
