Municipal Diversity & Anti-Racism Programs in Canada

Presentation Handout in PDF format based on the Laurier Institution’s report: key findings.

“This report provides an overview of diversity and anti-racism programs in Canadian municipalities, identifies some of the major benefits of these programs, and describes some of the more innovative features of programs in five moderately sized municipalities across Canada.
The research for this report included a literature review, a web search of 50 Canadian municipalities, postings on two web networks (Muniscope and the Creative Cities Network), and telephone and email interviews with administrative and program staff from 5 municipalities across Canada.
This report, and the PowerPoint presentation designed to accompany it, was contracted by the British Columbia Ministry of Community, Aboriginal and Women’s Services, Settlement and Multiculturalism Branch. “
