SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities

UN SDG 10 Reduced Inequalities Icon.

The British Columbia Institute of Technology acknowledges that our campuses are located on the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish Nations of Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), and xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam).

British Columbia is located on the homelands of 203 distinct Indigenous nations and cultures, who combined, speak over 30 different languages and close to 60 unique dialects. We ask all to reflect, acknowledge and honour in their own way the First Nation land on which they live, work and play.

BCIT is working to reduce inequality through teaching and applied research, student and employee engagement and through community partnerships and advocacy related to reducing inequality.
