The BCGA has always been an inclusive organization designed to be welcoming to ALL aviators and those that share a love of flight.
The BCGA has grown to become the second-largest aviation organization in Canada and is home to over 2100 members.
The Board of Directors feels that it is imperative that we establish a formal Diversity Policy. The Board of directors stands united in its adoption as we continue to encourage the continued health and growth of this community.
BCGA Diversity Policy
The BC General Aviation Association (BCGA) is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion in the club, and aviation as a whole.
The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, self-expression, unique capabilities and viewpoints of our members represents a significant part of our culture. Regardless of what makes us different we all gather around a mutual love for flight.
We embrace and encourage our members’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status and other characteristics that make our members unique.
All BCGA members have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times, whether its online or at events, or simply as members of the greater aviation community.
The BCGA Facebook community will be actively monitored for inappropriate dialogue or behavior against others, and offenders will be removed.
We recognize that there is work to be done to improve the accessibility and inclusivity of the BCGA, and the Executive is committed to listening, learning, and encouraging diversity.
