How we’re working with Indigenous Peoples

We are committed to working with First Nations, Métis and Inuit people to address systemic racism in programs and services.

  • Data directives and standards to guide how and what data is collected 
  • Research priorities to focus our efforts on the issues that are most important to First Nations, Métis and Inuit people and other racialized communities
  • Release of statistics or other information so that communities know about any information that we publish 

Research priorities

All B.C. First Nations and Métis Nation BC were invited to help develop the research priorities.

Building relationships

We’re committed to lasting reconciliation with First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities.  

To support this work, we hold monthly data circles with Indigenous governments as space for open and transparent discussions about topics of interest related to the Act or data as it relates to Indigenous communities. All First Nations in B.C. as well as Métis Nation BC are invited to join these meetings.
