In November 2020, MLA Rachna Singh was appointed BC's first Parliamentary Secretary for Anti-Racism Initiatives. Two of her key mandate commitments are to:
- Work with B.C.’s new Human Rights Commissioner and other stakeholders to introduce legislation that will help reduce systemic discrimination and pave the way for race-based data collection essential to modernizing sectors like policing, health care and education.
- Conduct a full review of anti-racism laws in other jurisdictions and launch a stakeholder consultation to inform the introduction of a new Anti-Racism Act that better serves everyone in B.C.
In the coming weeks, Parliamentary Secretary Singh will be engaging in pre-consultation outreach to rights holders and other key stakeholders, which will inform approaches for further public engagement on these two important initiatives.
