Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Unit

The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Unit (EDIU) was established in 2020 to centralize and support ongoing efforts to examine DPD policies and procedures through an EDI lens. To better serve our community as first responders in multicultural Metro Vancouver, the DPD is committed to addressing the realities of institutional racism as a structure of society. To do this, the DPD has ascribed to the philosophy of the late Maya Angelou, who said “when you know better, you do better.”
