Learn about CLBC’s Cultural Safety Principles in new video

In the fall of 2022, Community Living BC created its first Cultural Safety Policy. The policy describes cultural safety principles and practices that will guide how CLBC staff and service providers engage, support, monitor, and plan with First Nations, Métis and Inuit individuals, as well as their families, support networks and communities. This policy is an important step towards ensuring CLBC’s and the community living sector’s actions align with the rights of Indigenous Peoples, which is a key goal of our current Strategic Plan.

CLBC has created a new video to raise awareness and understanding of the six principles that guide the Cultural Safety Policy:

  1. Culturally Responsive Programming
  2. Indigenous Anti-Racism
  3. Indigenous Trauma Informed and Responsive Approach
  4. Promoting, Maintaining and Sustaining Connections
  5. Person-Centred Approach
  6. Promoting a Coordinated Service Approach

Watch CLBC’s Cultural Safety Principles video here:

The video, along with the Cultural Safety Service Provider Practice Guide, is a tool to support service providers and CLBC staff to learn how to offer our services in ways that are as culturally safe as possible.
