Feb 1 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

The First Nations Health Authority and BC Patient Safety & Quality Council have collaborated to produce a webinar series. The webinars explore the ideas of cultural safety and cultural humility and encourage participants to pledge their commitment to working towards a world that is free of systemic racism and inclusive of people.

The first webinar takes place on February 1st 2017 and covers the topic Pursing Cultural Safety: From Unearthing Bias to Realizing Reconciliation.

This report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives examines the most recent statistics on poverty and its associated hardships in BC, and demonstrates that strong policies are urgently needed to dramatically reduce and ultimately eliminate poverty in our province.

The aim of Nelson at its best is to help residents, businesses and community leaders develop a long-term strategy to reduce poverty and make their community the best place it can be.

The Rural Development Institute (RDI), at Selkirk College, is a regional research centre with a mandate to support decision-making by Columbia Basin-Boundary communities through the provision of information, applied research and outreach and extension support.
