WHERE DO WE MOVE FROM HERE?

On Monday February 3rd the Black Political Action Committee (BlackPAC) of Canada met with elected officials across political parties to talk about economic inclusion for Black Canadians.

Over the past 4 years, in lieu of a formal structure, the Black Political Action Committee of Canada has come together annually in a flexible, temporary means of achieving a mutual goal. Embracing a “constellation model” we’ve endeavored to speak with one voice.

FOCUS FOR 2020

Our focus for this 2020 political action effort was on economic inclusion through entrepreneurship support, procurement, and representation.

We further reiterated support for community calls for holistic reviews and reforms within our justice system using an anti-Black racism lens, mental health supports, an official apology for Slavery in Canada, an Emancipation Day Act of Parliament, and capital funding for Black led community infrastructure projects.
