CRRF Strategic Planning: 2020 to 2023

The Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF) is embarking on a strategic planning process with its Board of Directors. They have hired Toronto-based consulting firm HSC Vision Group (consultants Gary Sandor and Anu Radha Verma) to facilitate the strategic planning process. The focus is on understanding what people across Canada believe the role of the CRRF may be in the future, what directions a national organization focused on race relations and eliminating racism must consider, and to help us identify priorities for the next 3 years. There are a few ways that you can share your feedback, and we welcome your insights.

Bois Brule and Flower Beadwork People - the Métis experience in Canada

When we think of the Aboriginal people of Canada we may not immediately think of the Métis. But the history of this community is intertwined with the story – indeed the creation – of Canada as it exists today. Sharing many of the experiences as other Aboriginal people, the Métis also bore the unfair stigma of being seen as rebels for their support of Louis Riel. Join us as we learn more about Métis history, culture, and the opportunities that Reconciliation offers for a shared future.

When: June 19, 2019, 11am EDT/ 9am MDT
Where: Online, via Webex

The Canadian Race Relations Foundation Celebrates National Indigenous History Month.

While the entire month of June represents an opportunity to learn about Indigenous culture and to participate in local events, June 21 – designated in Canada as National Indigenous Peoples Day – is especially important. The date corresponds to the summer solstice and is the time at which many Indigenous Peoples’ groups have celebrated their culture and their heritage.

We encourage Canadians to take time during the month of June to review the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, and to choose, from the list of 94, one item that they can work towards over the next twelve months. Reconciliation is the business of every person who lives in Canada, whether they have just arrived or have lived here for generations.
