BCPVPA Diversity Matters Survey

We are inviting BCPVPA members to participate in the Diversity Matters Survey to help us to better understand the composition of our membership, and to create programming to assist members in supporting racial equity in their schools or programs. 

It should take less than 5 minutes to complete the survey, and the survey will remain open until Monday April 18. Thank you for your participation.

The Canadian Human Rights Act stipulates that it is not a discriminatory practice to collect information if it is intended to be used in developing policy to support under-represented or marginalized people. Survey responses are anonymous.
