The Representative for Children and Youth champions the fundamental rights of children and youth across British Columbia. The Representative’s Office is dedicated to providing a safe, respectful and supportive environment and is a place where human rights are respected and lesbian, gay, bisexual, two-spirited, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) children and youth, their friends, families and allies are welcome and supported.
The Representative’s Office works to ensure all LGBTQ youth feel free to express themselves without fear of judgment or criticism, and have their concerns addressed and needs supported by all RCY employees, policies and procedures.
In 2011, the Representative released a video supporting the It Gets Better project, aimed at inspiring B.C. LGBTQ youth to focus on a positive future ahead.
