Why inclusivity matters

Inclusivity isn’t simply about including “others” or “special groups.” It’s about welcoming everyone. It’s not just for “them,” whether “they” are Two-Spirit & LGBTQ+ or people of colour, but for all of us. Inclusive healthcare accepts and welcomes you as you are.

If your experiences, needs, and preferences are recognized and supported, you’re more likely to feel comfortable and confident about freely expressing all parts of yourself when seeking or receiving healthcare. A genuine and trusting relationship with your healthcare provider can ensure that you receive the best possible care.
