Black Torontonians are contributing to all areas of city life; adding their talents and assets to make Toronto stronger, more vibrant and more successful.


Studies continue to show that Anti-Black racism affects the life chances of more than 200,000 people of African descent or origin in Toronto.

Action: The Toronto City Council adopted the Action Plan to Confront Anti-Black racism on December 5, 2017.

As the government closest to the people, the City of Toronto recognizes its responsibility to create a city that works for all residents. Confronting and removing barriers caused by Anti-Black Racism benefits all Torontonians, especially other Toronto communities experiencing racism and marginalization. The Toronto Action Plan to Confront Anti-Black Racism is the result of a collaborative effort between the City of Toronto and Torontonians of African descent. The review of 41 years of reports and recommendations on anti-Black racism formed the basis for 41 community conversations in partnership with 19 community agencies, and engagement from over 800 members of Toronto’s diverse Black communities.
