National Online Moose Hide Campaign Day – February 11

My name is Alicia Hibbert, I have a prairie Métis perspective, and I’m a guest living with gratitude on the traditional, ancestral, unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), səl̓ilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), and skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) peoples. Our team believes that wellbeing requires safe, healthy, and supportive environments, including equity and human rights.

Moose Hide Campaign 2021

One of the ways you can help build a safe and inclusive workplace is to participate in the Moose Hide Campaign, a movement for all ages, backgrounds, and gender identities to stand up against domestic and gender-based violence.

In a 2020 Statistics Canada report, 54% of the responding victim services reported an increase in the number of individuals served during the first half of 2020 (Allen and Jaffray, 2020). The cycle of violence against Indigenous women and girls is a result of colonization and its intergenerational impacts, including residential schools and the continuing racism experienced by Indigenous people in the health care system.

Play your part in standing up against domestic and gender-based violence by visiting the Moose Hide Campaign to understand more about the initiative. This year’s campaign will be virtual and you can register online. There will be lessons from Elders, keynote speakers, workshops, and a ceremony.

The website holds the information about wearing synthetic, animal-free versions of the hide. For this, and more information, visit the Campaign FAQs section.

Discussions about gender-based and domestic violence can be emotionally triggering and there are UBC and community mental health resources available to support you:
