Justice & Diversity

Community Connections Support Services envisions a vibrant and inclusive society that embraces equality and diversity by promoting racial and LGBTQ2S+ justice and eliminating discrimination for all.

We acknowledge the land that we live, work, and play on as the traditional territories of the Okanagan, Ktunaxa, and Sinixt Nations.

Power restored in Kelowna

Hey everyone, looks like the power’s back on in the Okanagan! Another good reminder to keep those emergency preparedness kits stocked with flashlights, batteries, and candles.

Heat warnings

Hey everyone, with the current heat warnings in effect please take extra precautions to keep cool at this time. 

Stay updated on heat warnings and current wildfire info (https://www.emergencyinfobc.gov.bc.ca/) and find out what measures are in place locally for cooling centres and heat response/resources, should you need them.  Example from Kelowna here: https://www.kelowna.ca/our-community/news-events/news/cool-down-locations-available-public-temperatures-climb

Stay safe everyone!

National Indigenous Peoples Day JUNE 21

Hey everyone, it’s National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21 — learn more about National Indigenous Peoples Day here, find out about National Indigenous History Month (June) here, and share what’s going on in your community in the comments!

National Indigenous Peoples Day takes place on the summer solstice, June 21. It’s a special occasion to learn more about the rich and diverse cultures, voices, experiences and histories of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.

Learning about Indigenous Peoples, places and experiences is a step forward each Canadian can take on the path to reconciliation.
