Province seeks people to join anti-racism committee, help dismantle systemic racism

BY The Canadian Press, Jun 25, 2022 12:46 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

The province is looking for members to form its first anti-racism committee, and applicants have until July 18th to apply.

A statement from the Ministry of the Attorney General says the anti-racism data committee is part of B.C.'s recently enacted Anti-Racism Data Act, which will safely use and share data about people of colour in an effort to make government programs and services more equitable.

The act is the first in Canada to be co-developed with Indigenous Peoples and the province says Indigenous, Black and other racialized people are encouraged to apply for as many as 11 positions, including committee chair.

The ministry says members will be chosen from every corner of B-C and will collaborate with the government to implement the act and ensure the voices of racialized people are central to the process.
