The Canadian Race Relations Foundation



The Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF) is embarking on a strategic planning process led by 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:
  1. In person consultations across the country in June 2019
  2. Online survey, open from May 28 to June 28 2019
Please feel free to attend any of the sessions outlined below. There will be two sessions in each  city:
  • The Afternoon Session (1:30 pm) is intended for organizations and service providers who work directly in the field of race relations – senior leaders, staff and others who spend their days working directly on eliminating racism;
  • The Evening Session (6:30 pm) is intended for individuals, community leaders, people affected by racism, and people who live and work in racialized communities.
