Hate Has No Place in BC
Report a Hate Crime
Why It’s Important To Report
Every British Columbian has the right to feel safe and to live their lives in the absence of fear or threat. The first step to create communities free from violence, racism and discrimination, is to report hate crimes. We have the right and the responsibility to take action against hate activity to keep our communities safe.
If you are a target or a witness to an incident of racism or hate, report it to the police. Don’t let hate have a place in BC.
If You Are Unsure What You Experienced Or Witnessed Is A Hate Crime, Report It Too
To report a hate incident, or if you are unsure whether a hate crime has occurred, call your local police department, using the non-emergency number. You can also go to the police station and make a report in person.
Reporting any incident, no matter how minor it may seem, is very important. Your reports can help police and community partners better target prevention, education and outreach initiatives in your community. Reports can also help identify social trends and prevent possible escalation to crime.Contact Numbers
