resource image

This Toolkit provides a step-by-step approach that community organizations can use to enhance the level of cultural competency and relevancy of their organization and/ or their individual programs. It was developed with a focus on community-based seniors serving organizations, or CBSS (Community Based Seniors’ Services), in British Columbia, and highlights resources and information relevant to the local population. Key considerations for agencies working with Indigenous populations are also included under ‘Indigenous Lens’ tables throughout the document.

The Toolkit includes two parts:

  • the Toolkit Checklist (see attached ‘Intercultural Toolkit Checklist’), which can be filled out by organizations as they work through the process, and
  • this document, which provides details and guidance for each step.
