All are Welcome!

UBC Recreation is committed to providing an inclusive, accessible, and respectful experience for all of its patrons, volunteers, and staff. An individual’s physical or mental ability, level of health or wellbeing, physical size or fitness level; sexual orientation, gender identity or expression; racial, ethnic, or cultural identity should not be a barrier to anyone visiting our facilities or participating in our programs.

Along with the University, UBC Recreation is striving to create a sport and recreation experience that challenges or removes conventions that marginalize or limit the opportunities for individuals to participate. Through education, evaluation, and evolution, we are making changes to our programs, policies, and culture to establish a more inclusive experience.

Topic Areas of Focus

Currently, UBC Recreation is committed to improving its policies, access, and communication on the following topics:


Gender Identity & Expression


Ability & Accessibility


Race, Culture, & Ethnic Diversity
