This past year, North Vancouver School District participated in a pilot project with eight other school districts in our Province to raise awareness about SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity).

SOGI is a term used by the BC Human Rights Code to describe an area of prohibited discrimination. It is an inclusive term that encompasses all individuals regardless of where they identify on the sexual orientation or gender identity spectrums, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, two-spirit, heterosexual, and cisgender.

NVSD's Policy 412 supports and celebrates sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression for all its members.
