Destination BC openly embraces diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, and we are proud to share that our organization is now Rainbow Registered® – an accreditation given to 2SLGBTQI+ friendly spaces.
The accreditation is part of Destination BC’s journey of introspection, and continued efforts to delve deep into our own policies, processes, and programs to identify and remove barriers for equity-deserving groups. Working closely with Canada’s 2SLGBTQI+ Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC) and their independent assessors, we have forged a path towards greater inclusivity by receiving this accreditation.
Becoming Rainbow Registered signifies an ongoing commitment and effort to provide a warm and accepting experience for 2SLGBTQI+ employees and consumers through progressive policies and practices, with a program that stands at the forefront of efforts to promote 2SLGBTQI+ inclusivity in Canada’s tourism industry.
Accreditation is awarded following rigorous assessment and having successfully met the standards around policies and practices, training, leadership and commitment, and inclusion. Demonstrating inclusive corporate values, the Rainbow Registered program, spearheaded by Canada’s 2SLGBTQI+ Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC), provides a digital platform to discover organizations and businesses that prioritize safety and inclusivity.
