Gender Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Policy

The purposes of the BC Rugby Gender and Inclusion policy are as follows:

1. To ensure the fair and respectful inclusion of all persons in BC Rugby such that
they feel a sense of belonging, their feelings are respected, they are valued for
who they are, and they feel a level of supportive energy and commitment from
others;
2. The policy supports members in meeting the requirements of the BC Human
Rights Code;
3. The policy supports members in meeting the requirements of Bill C16, which
lists ‘gender identity’ and ‘gender expression’ as grounds on which people are
protected against unlawful discrimination.
