We ask that when you sign-up for the BC Greencare Community you use a Health Authority specific email address only. A service provider whose operations are located outside Canada facilitates your participation in the BC Greencare online newsletter. The BC Greencare website itself is hosted by a service provider based in Canada; only the online newsletter service provider’s facilities are located outside of Canada.
By opting-in to receive email communication from the BC Greencare campaign, you will be providing your Health Authority specific email address to that foreign service provider, who will log it and accepting disclosure, store the email address outside Canada. Please note that the Health Authorities and FortisBC do not have explicit control of the service provider’s use of the email addresses it logs; however, the service provider is governed by a rigorous Policy, which you can access here: http://www.mailchimp.com/page/security
The four health authorities of Fraser Health Authority, Providence Health Care, the Provincial Services Health Authority and Vancouver Coastal Health will use email address you provide to administer your participation in the GreenCare Community online newsletter that is run by GreenCare and FortisBC’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation (EEC) programs under the general authority of the Energy Plan, Bill 44: Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act.
If you have any questions about the privacy matters related to the BC Greencare Community, please contact greencare (at) vch.ca
BC Greencare code of conduct.
All BC Greencare participants are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the Health Authorities’ Workplace and Human Rights Policies. Although a private site for health authority employees, the BC Greencare site and its content can be viewed by anyone within those health authorities.
Consider the impact of your words and actions on others. Think before you speak (or write). Take responsibility for your behaviour.
Be open to co-workers’ opinions and ideas. Accept and provide constructive feedback. Doing so allows colleagues to know you understand and value their input.
When you encounter conflict or disagreement, help the other person understand your concern. Approach the person in a timely manner using the cooperative approach to problem solving.
Acknowledge colleagues for a job well done. Be supportive of your team. The most successful teams are those that can draw upon the strengths of each person.
Every person has the right to expect to be treated with dignity and respect.
Speak courteously. What you say is equally as important as how you say it (or write it). If you want to be heard, you also need to listen.
Be reasonable. People follow a variety of lifestyles, cultures, religions. Work to understand rather than exclude.
Make it real.
Think about the carbon reduction actions that could take place in the real world – whether they’re at home, at work or in your community - and then post your ideas, suggestions and solutions to the Community Discussion forum.
