Addressing Systemic Racism in B.C.

The Government of B.C. is taking action to address systemic racism in provincial programs and services. This is an important part of our work to make our services stronger for everyone.

The BC Demographic Survey is now closed. More than 200,000 people responded. Thank you to everyone who completed the survey.

What happens now the survey is closed?

We’re now working to combine the survey responses with other information that we hold to identify gaps in our services and make them more accessible and inclusive for everyone in B.C.

In 2024, we’ll share the results of the survey and updates on how we’re using this information to support research priorities. 

What’s the BC Demographic Survey?

Our anti-racism research priorities

Keeping your data safe

Anti-Racism Data Act

We heard from communities around B.C. that we need to prioritize improving services for people, especially in the areas of education, employment and health.   

We’ve heard from many Indigenous and racialized people that they are being left behind because our services weren’t designed with them in mind. The Anti-Racism Data Act has been created to help us conduct research that will identify gaps in our services. This will enable us to make them more accessible and inclusive for everyone.
