Racism is still very present in Canada, and unfortunately, seems to be even more visible in recent years not only in North America but across the world, with the rise in anti-immigrant and white nationalists groups, as well as racist and xenophobic attacks.
The federal government is currently creating an anti-racism strategy and is inviting all Canadians to participate in a consultation on this new strategy.
Through its website, Canadian Heritage is asking people to submit their ideas and experiences so that the government’s anti-racism work can reflect these experiences. PSAC encourages all of its members, particularly racialized members, to participate in this important consultation.
You can learn more and participate in the survey by visiting the consultation website: Join the conversation: Anti-racism engagement.
The deadline for participation is December 9, 2018.
PSAC has also asked for a face-to-face meeting with government officials to discuss this strategy and how the government should address racism in the federal public service.
