Learn about CLBC’s Cultural Safety Principles in new video
Dear Service Providers,
In the fall of 2022, Community Living BC created its first Cultural Safety Policy. The policy describes cultural safety principles and practices that will guide how CLBC staff and service providers engage, support, monitor, and plan with First Nations, Métis and Inuit individuals, as well as their families, support networks and communities. This policy is an important step towards ensuring CLBC’s and the community living sector’s actions align with the rights of Indigenous Peoples, which is a key goal of our current Strategic Plan.
CLBC has created a new video to raise awareness and understanding of the six principles that guide the Cultural Safety Policy:Culturally Responsive ProgrammingIndigenous Anti-RacismIndigenous Trauma Informed and Responsive ApproachPromoting, Maintaining and Sustaining ConnectionsPerson-Centred ApproachPromoting a Coordinated Service Approach Click here to watch CLBC’s Cultural Safety Principles video
The Mental Health Commission of Canada reports that one in every five Canadians experiences a mental health problem within a given year. While we often know a lot about physical illness, there tends to be less knowledge about mental health or substance use problems. This lack of understanding leads to fear and negative attitudes towards individuals living with these problems. It prevents people from seeking help for themselves and from providing appropriate support to people around them.

Gain the tools to conquer self-doubt and and rewrite your story in this empowering workshop on unmasking imposter syndrome
Imposter syndrome refers to a psychological phenomenon where individuals hold the belief that they are undeserving of success, persistently plagued by feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt about their intelligence, skills, or competence. It is often described as feeling like a fraud who achieved success through luck and fear being exposed.
This workshop delves into the essence of imposter syndrome, exploring its distinct types and offering practical strategies for overcoming self-doubt.
Over the span of 75 minutes, participants will:
Learn to recognize imposter syndrome in themselves and their colleagues.
Understand the connection between avoidance, overworking, and imposter syndrome.
Examine the narratives we tell ourselves that perpetuate self-doubt.
Harness the power of self-compassion to combat imposter syndrome.
Discover effective coping strategies for dealing with imposter syndrome.
Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss their personal experiences with imposter syndrome and its triggers.
This workshop welcomes individuals who are interested in understanding and addressing imposter syndrome, as well as Federation members seeking ways to navigate imposter syndrome and the accompanying unhelpful thoughts and emotions.
