About the Anti-Racism Office

The Anti-Racism Office was established to oversee the implementation of the Anti-Racism Action Plan. It will ensure a collaborative, whole-of-government approach is used to address systemic racism, promote diversity and achieve anti-racist results. The Office will work collaboratively with departments to ensure government policy, programs, and services are designed in sensitive and responsive ways that address the needs of racialized and Indigenous communities and groups and the intersectionality within those communities.

The following are the guiding principles of the Anti- Racism Office:

  • Engagement - Consistent, meaningful engagement with racialized communities, Indigenous communities, and local ethnocultural organizations is essential to creating equity-based and anti-racist policies
  • Accountability - Staff and institutions are transparent, and responsible, and develop frameworks to assess key measurements of success and intended impacts
  • Best Interests of the community - Our work is driven, informed, and directed by the needs of racialized and Indigenous communities
