The Ombudsperson British Columbia is pleased to share with you that they have recently published an updated resource, titled Fairness by Design: An Administrative Fairness Self-Assessment Guide, which they hope you will find useful in your work delivering public services. A PDF version of that guide can be downloaded from their website. They also have a one-page information sheet containing additional Fairness and Education Resources
As part of the launch of this updated resource, their office is also hosting a webinar for public bodies. The webinar is designed to provide a brief outline of the fairness standards found in the guide and how they can be applied to ensure that programs are delivered fairly. The one-hour webinar will be held on Thursday, March 16, 2023 from 10:00 – 11:00 am PST via Zoom. Those interested in participating may register here.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact their office’s Public Authority Consultation and Training Team at email@example.com.
