EQU8 Strategy is born out of shared vision and passion for equitable, sustainable, and just society, one on a long and difficult journey of reconciliation on the heels of the truth of the unceded and traditional Indigenous lands coming to light.

As a new collaboration between professionals in practice, EQU8 brings together our decades of expertise in law, government, education, healthcare, and administration; extensive network of public, corporate, and community partners and allies; and most importantly, diverse personal and lived experience as visible minorities, Indigenous, first generation immigrants, international students, caregivers, 2SLGBTQIA+, campaigners, advocates, and volunteers locally and nationally.


Throughout our individual journeys, each of us braved discrimination and barriers at some points, but were also beneficiaries of good will at other times. While unique in our backgrounds and stories, we are united by our common humanity that became the founding principle of EQU8. In synergy, we endeavour to amplify our collective impact for our communities facing complex challenges, and for progressive policy and cultural transformation that can respect everyone.



We break down barriers for meaningful social change by gearing our professional expertise and lived experience.
