Victoria: The B.C. government has said more community and Indigenous groups will receive grants to help their communities participate in the B.C. Demographic Survey.

The government said it has awarded nearly $100, 000 to 39 additional organizations to encourage more people to take the survey.

That brings the total amount awarded to more than $183,000, distributed to 74 community and Indigenous groups throughout the province.

The government said the race-based data gleaned from the survey will be used to help identify where people are not getting equitable access to government services, so that the province can make those services more accessible and inclusive. — Canadian Press
