Peer Wages Consultation - Coalition Against Prohibition and Overdose

On Behalf of the Vancouver Community Coalition Against Prohibition and Overdose:


After a lengthy community discussion, the Vancouver Community Coalition Against Prohibition and Overdose is putting together a community consultation by-and-for PWLLE in the DTES around peer wage standards. Our hope is to develop a best practice document using direct feedback from folks working in the neighbourhood that can be used to advocate for direct and immediate increases to peer wages. This document is intended to supplant the use of the BCCDC Payment Standards for Short Term Engagements, which seems to be people's go-to frame of reference despite it's non-applicability to most projects.


To this end, on Friday April 1st, we will be having a community consultation around peer wages, including wage standards, problems with the grant/RFP process, wage equity, etc. This event will be taking place at the Japanese language school and the first 50 folks in attendance will receive honorarium.
