Community Consultations Report


Community Consultations Report

The VPS has been engaged in an ongoing
consultation process with community members since
Summer 2016. The information in this document is
a brief summary taken of feedback themes and the
strategies VPS is utilizing in response. The full sixteen page report is available here.

Feedback was collated from numerous phone calls
and e-mails to our office, anonymous online surveys,
monitored social media discussion, four community
consultations with diverse groups, and multiple
one-on-one meetings with community members.

Consultation participants come from diverse age,
ethnic, gender, faith, immigration status, sexual
orientation, and ability groups from across the GVRD.
VPS has intentionally centered the experiences of
those who have been marginalized at VPS events or
who experience access barriers as opposed to those
with privilege.

Community consultation and alterations to our events
to meet the needs of the community will continue
to take place throughout Pride 2017 and beyond as
we realize these are not issues that will be resolved
through one-time fixes.
