InterChurch Health Ministries Canada supports diversity and inclusion as ways to promote health and well-being. The words and concepts of Diversity and Inclusion are defined by the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion as follows:
Diversity is about the individual. It is about the variety of unique dimensions, qualities and characteristics we all possess.
Inclusion is about the collective. It is about creating a culture that strives for equity and embraces, respects, accepts and values difference.
Diversity and inclusion is about capturing the uniqueness of the individual; creating an environment that values and respects individuals for their talents, skills and abilities to the benefit of the collective.
