Diversity is at the heart of what it means to be Canadian, and our government is steadfast in our commitment to fighting racism at every turn. That starts with concrete action.

Minister Khera, Minister of Diversity, Inclusion and Persons with Disabilities, just announced the launch of Changing Systems, Transforming Lives: Canada’s Anti-Racism Strategy 2024-2028.

This new strategy builds upon the first iteration and is informed by substantial community input. Canada’s Anti-Racism Strategy 2024-2028 is a $110.4 million action-oriented framework for change. It takes a whole-of-government approach with over 70 federal initiatives to eliminate systemic racism and create diverse and inclusive communities.

The priorities areas include:

  • Promoting economic, social, and cultural empowerment;
  • Advancing racial equity in immigration, health, and housing systems;
  • Driving justice, law enforcement, intelligence, and public safety systems reform; and
  • Using international engagement to inform advancement on racial equity and inclusion at home.

We want the federal government to reflect the Canada it serves – because the more voices and perspectives we have at the table, the better the decision-making.

Please see the news release for more information. Also, please refer to the full Strategy for further details.
