Institutional GBA Plus Capacity

The NBC does not have the resources to conduct data analysis and therefore to devote staff to
the GBA Plus.

The NBC will continue to recommend the online course on GBA Plus to managers and employees in key sectors (e.g., managers, human resources managers) and to make the training accessible to all employees by posting it on the Intranet.

The NBC will continue to ensure that various identity factors, including 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.

The NBC will implement its accessibility plan.

By supporting the Maintenance of infrastructure and security and Educational, cultural and heritage activities programs, Internal Services have indirect repercussions supporting the "Poverty Reduction, Health and Well-being" and "Education and Skills Development" pillars. However, this program does not collect data to monitor gender and diversity impacts.
  2. In order to contribute to inclusion and diversity, the communications department :
    • will produce publications on the history of the park in relation to multiculturalism on the various NBC platforms (e.g. National Aboriginal History Month, International Women's Rights Day and Black History Month);
    • insert subtitles in the videos broadcast on its social media.
