Taking Action Against Systemic Racism and Religious Discrimination

In February I had the opportunity to present to the House of Commons the Heritage Committee’s report on Taking Action on Systemic Racism and Religious Discrimination, including Islamophobia.  As part of the study we heard from over 70 witnesses from across Canada about their experiences and expertise.

I was happy to see that Budget 2018 addresses some of the issues raised by this study on the availability of data on which to base policies.  The Budget commits funding for Statistics Canada to address gaps in gathering data and to better use data related to gender and diversity.
