Canada: Ontario Introduces Three Year Anti-Racism Strategic Plan

On March 7, 2017, the Government of Ontario released a three-year anti-racism strategic plan (the “Strategic Plan”). The Strategic Plan seeks to break down barriers for racialized people across Ontario, including Black, Indigenous and other racialized communities. While no related legislation has yet been introduced, the Strategic Plan notes that the Government of Ontario plans to introduce anti-racism legislation in the Spring of 2017 to “provide a framework for government and organizations to identify and combat systemic racism.”
