End Racism and Hate: Your Right. Your Responsibility.
Report a Hate Incident
Get Involved – Resilience BC
The Resilience BC Anti-Racism Network offers a multi-faceted, province-wide approach with greater focus and leadership in identifying and challenging racism. The program connects communities with information, supports and training they need to respond to, and prevent future incidents of, racism and hate.
The Resilience BC Anti-Racism Network delivers coordinated services through a “Hub and Spoke” model. The centralized hub connects communities, shares information and resources and coordinates training and anti-racism initiatives. The spokes are community-based branches that represent and work with local members. They also identify local priorities and move anti-racism and anti-hate projects forward.Learn More
Other Ways to Report
Take action if you see racist or hateful content on the Internet.
Comments or videos on the Internet are not exempt from possible criminal liability as a hate crime and can be reported for investigation where there is a sufficient link to Canada.
Discriminatory acts such as racist, transphobic, or sexist remarks (that may or may not be criminal in nature) may also be dealt with by human rights legislation or by the permitted usage policies by social media platforms, web hosting services and Internet service providers. Coverage may include racist or hateful language or comments on news articles, social media posts, chat forums or online gaming.
Complaints can be directed to the police or to website administrators, web hosting or Internet service providers.
- Report it to the police – If you see direct threats on the Internet, you can report it to the police.
- Report it to the website administrator – Most websites have rules known as ‘acceptable use policies’ that set out what cannot be put on their website and often do not allow comments, videos and photos that offend or hurt people. Web and social media sites may have simple ways for you to report about a page or video. Others may have a “report this page” button that you can click.
- Report it to the hosting company – Hosting companies own the digital space that is rented by website owners to have a presence on the Internet. Hosting companies often have their own set of rules about content. You can find out which company hosts a website by entering their web address on the “Who is hosting this?” website.
- Contact your own Internet supplier to get more information.
