Inclusion, equity, and diversity

People are at the heart of everything we do, and we are working hard to ensure our activities support fairness, equality, and access for all.

We are working on ways to address many of these issues, including the Healthy City Strategy activities and joint committees such as the Trans, Gender Diverse, and Two Spirit Inclusion Advisory Committee, among others.
