“To protect, enhance and promote the wise use of the environment for the benefit of present and future generations.”
We greatly appreciate the talent and dedication of all volunteers. It is our practice to treat each volunteer with dignity and respect. Our philosophy is reflected in:
We have always supported the principle of equal employment and volunteer opportunities, as per the Human Rights Act. We do not discriminate based on race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, family status or persons with disabilities.
We will not tolerate any unlawful discrimination or harassment in violation of these principles. Please refer to our Harassment in the Workplace policy found in the BC Wildlife Federation Employee Handbook.
As a part of our teamwork philosophy, we strongly encourage open communication amongst individuals and teams. We feel this is the best way to deal effectively with daily challenges and opportunities, and we encourage you to engage in conversations in a constructive manner if you have any concerns.
Education & Research
In addition to these elected positions, the BCWF also has a number of functioning committees whose Chairs are appointed by the President and whose members are appointed by the committee chairs themselves. These committees conduct a significant portion of the business of the Federation but are not directly involved in the management of the Federation.
We are a team from a variety of different backgrounds, working at a variety of different tasks, working together towards a common goal of supporting the BCWF vision: “to protect, enhance and promote the wise use of the environment for the benefit of present and future generations.” Together, we support one another and strive to foster growth, professional development, new experiences, and friendships.
