Health equity means that all people can reach their full health potential and should not be disadvantaged from attaining it because of their race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, social class, socioeconomic status or other socially determined circumstance.
At Reconnect we are committed to ensuring that we are providing equitable care to our clients and community. As part of this work we have started asking our clients demographic questions about themselves about their language, race or ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, length of time in Canada, religion, gender and income. Collecting this information will allow us to understand who our clients are and if any groups are being disadvantaged in any way, so that we can address those inequities. Answering the questions in this survey is voluntary, and does not affect anyone’s ability to access Reconnect’s services. All survey responses are kept confidential.
