WTC is conducting an initiative to understand what progress has been made in municipalities across BC and how we can support municipalities to implement this work.

The work of WTC in Vancouver takes places on the stolen ancestral territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. We acknowledge the leadership of Indigenous women for time immemorial, and seek to learn and unlearn our own colonial practices as we work in cities as sites of resistance.
