Our organization and our work are strengthened by recognizing and valuing a full representation of perspectives and experiences that exist in Canadian communities. We are committed to combating discrimination in all forms, including on the basis of Indigenous ancestry, race, ethnicity, ability, legal status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, income, and religious affiliation. We know that food insecurity is a form of economic inequity, which is often compounded by these intersecting identities.
We work in diverse sociopolitical contexts and recognize the importance of local identities and knowledge. We respect the right of Indigenous communities to self determination.
Our organization is committed to achieving full accessibility for persons of all abilities. Part of this commitment includes arranging accommodations for persons of all abilities to create an equitable and inclusive work environment.
At Community Food Centres Canada, we resolve to listen to and include these voices in our organization and work, and to respond, acknowledge, and adapt where bias and inequities appear. We are committed to building greater equity and inclusion, both within our organization and through the work we do with partners across Canada.
