CIVX 2021

This Year’s Theme:
Inclusive Local Government:
Building Equality, Embracing Diversity

The Lower Mainland Local Government Association and CivicInfo BC are proud to present CIVX 2021, “Inclusive Local Government: Building Equality, Embracing Diversity”.

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms states, “Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.”

Today, there is broad recognition that our country, our institutions – and we as citizens – have not always lived up to these ideals. Together, we can and must do better.

What role can local governments play? To start, we need to listen, and we need to trade ideas that can lead to positive change. As part of that process, we invite you to join us online for CivX 2021, Inclusive Local Government: Building Equality, Embracing Diversity, November 15 – 17, 2021, hosted by the Lower Mainland Local Government Association and CivicInfo BC.

Each of our six speakers will have unique stories to tell, and useful resources to share.
