CRRF black history month events:
  • The CRRF is honoured to mark Black History Month through its participation in the Blackness in Canada conference which will be held in Toronto on February 4-5.
  • We also invite Canadians to visit our website to review the findings of Race Relations in Canada, a survey of Canadian public opinion produced by the Environics Institute in partnership with the CRRF. The views and perspectives of Black Canadians are explored in detail. The report may be found here.
Coming Soon: RDS vs. 
RDS vs. tells the true personal story of Rodney Darren Smalls’ (RDS), and his journey to shake the stereotypes that followed him as a Black teenage drug dealer and channel his entrepreneurship into community benefit.
