Help shape BC's anti-racism legislation

British Columbians are encouraged to share their thoughts on new legislation that will hold the government accountable for addressing systemic racism within its programs and services and for providing supports for those who have been negatively impacted.

We want to ensure that future legislation will combat antisemitism and improve the quality of Jewish life in our province. This is why we want you to help shape the anti-racism legislation by making your voice heard. The questionnaire is available in 15 languages, takes from seven to 12 minutes to complete, and will remain open until Sept. 30, 2023.

In addition to your input, the legislation will be co-developed with Indigenous Peoples and is set to be introduced in 2024. It will build on the Anti-Racism Data Act, The new legislation will require government, through changes to laws and revisions to policies and programs, to address systemic racism uncovered through the act.

Your perspective is valuable and will help make B.C. a more just, inclusive, and welcoming province. Your participation in this questionnaire will assist us in making sure Jewish voices are heard.
