|Institutional GBA+ capacity
The NBC does not have the resources to conduct data analysis.
The NBC ensures that various identity factors, such as gender, age, Aboriginal origin or identity, living with a disability, etc., are taken into account when developing projects and creating or updating services and activities.
Employees responsible for key sectors (e.g., facilitation coordination) have taken the online course on GBA+, which is accessible to all employees on the Intranet.
|Highlights of GBA+ results by program
The program for the conservation and protection of natural, cultural and heritage assets in Battlefields Park allows the NBC to offer free and safe access to a public place that is an island of nature and freshness in the heart of the city, regardless of the income, gender, age, etc. of users.
The NBC ensures the repair and restoration of real estate and heritage properties, to the greatest extent possible, according to universal design, in order to meet the needs of every individual, regardless of age, size, or physical ability.
