April 4, 2017: Decent Work for All BC2030 – Tell Your Next MLA What You Need
Not your usual candidate forum, ‘Decent Work For All’ offers you a chance to tell local candidates what you want and why that is important! All Candidates from the Courtenay/Comox and Mid-Island ridings will be invited as ‘Guest Listeners’ and be offered a short opportunity to speak in response to what they have heard!
In 2015, the Canadian Federal Government signed on to support the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals at home and abroad. So far, the BC Provincial Government has not, even though many of the goals and targets outlined fall under Provincial Jurisdiction.
Goal #8 is to Provide Inclusive and Sustainable Economic Growth, Employment and Decent Work for All is especially important to Comox Valley citizens today and topics such as a living wage fall under Provincial jurisdiction.
The Changemaker Forum (2016)
The Changemaker Forum was a by-invitation two-day retreat intending to provide formal and informal leaders in our community with an opportunity to build relationships with each other and to build an inclusion focused Changemaker Network; build understanding of power, privilege and its impact on inclusion; add to inclusion work already being done by identifying next steps.
The ultimate goal of the Changemaker Forum was to enhance/ensure/support inclusive behaviour at individual, community and organizational levels by providing community leaders (formal and informal) with the understanding and the tools to add/change practices embedded in informal behaviours, systemic and organizational processes and systems. The documents and framework are linked on our Resources page.
