Anti-racism legislation public questionnaire

Public questionnaire introduction

Thank you for your interest in the B.C. government’s commitment to introduce anti-racism legislation.

This engagement questionnaire is not the BC Demographic Survey. Please take the BC Demographic Survey to help fill gaps in government services:


In June 2022, the province reached a major milestone when British Columbia's Anti-Racism Data Act (ARDA) became law and paved the way for race-based data collection. Building on this momentum, our priority now is to make further progress with broader anti-racism legislation. We are requesting your participation in this survey to better understand experiences of systemic racism in our province. The information you provide will inform the development of the anti-racism legislation to be introduced in spring 2024. 

The broader anti-racism legislation aims to address Indigenous-specific racism, and will be informed by previous government engagements that informed the In Plain Sight Report on Indigenous-Specific Racism in Healthcare, the Declaration Act Action Plan, and the Anti-Racism Data Act.

The questionnaire is open until September 30, 2023, at 4 pm Pacific Time. It is available in 15 languages and takes between 7 and 12 minutes to complete. All questions are optional, and your responses are confidential. All responses will be collected and reviewed together as a group.

As the topic of racism can be challenging and sensitive, we recognize that asking participants to share their experiences may have negative effects. If you need support, here is a list of resources:
