Diversity and Equity

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

We are committed to celebrating the rich diversity of people in our community. We are guided by the principle that embracing diversity enriches the lives of all people. We all share the responsibility for creating an equitable and inclusive community and for addressing discrimination in all forms.

Community Recreation Services works hard to build a welcoming and inclusive community.

We aim to:

  • Foster increased understanding of diverse cultures.
  • Work with Saanich's ethno-cultural groups.
  • Forge partnerships to create lifestyle programs and services.
