Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
At Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), we are committed to advancing equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) throughout our organization in partnership with our staff and medical staff. We believe this is critical to delivering exceptional care and building a great place to work.
We aim to create a diverse and inclusive organization and address systemic barriers embedded within policies, practices, programs and services that inadvertently exclude individuals and groups.
