OUR TIME IS NOW!
In March 2022, Canada’s Black communities will converge in Halifax for the third instalment of the National Black Canadians Summit, organized and hosted by the Michaëlle Jean Foundation. Since the last Summit, we have met with federal ministers to present our strategic action plan that has informed policies and directed and positively impacted Black lives in Canada. Our unified demands for greater accountability and recognition of the contribution of Black Canadians have been heard – and will continue to be heard – at all levels of government. Join the Summit to have your voice heard!
