Mission


The Colour Factor is a non-profit organization aimed at decolonizing wellness and creating brave spaces of healing for the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) community, through conversation, collaboration and creativity.

Vision


Decolonize wellness for an inclusive and restored society.

As Wellness Educators who've personally experienced living with mental health concerns, we noticed a gap in mental health services when it came to BIPOC representation. Through open and honest Conversation, strong and strategic Collaborations and restorative expression through Creativity, The Colour Factor decolonizes wellness, reclaims traditional healing practices and helps close the gap in the mental health care system.

What Matters Most

Compassion


Empathy in action! We're not afraid to lean into discomfort with our guests because we've been there before ourselves.

Individuality


Honouring and celebrating all of a person's intersectionalities, is critically important when working through trauma. We strive to make our guests feel included, valued and validated.

Truth & Reconciliation


Revealing past wrongdoings in the hopes of resolving present conflict, to rebuild a better future.
