We aim to be intentional and proactive in having our staff be equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to be inclusive, anti-racist, respectful, and equitable in their day-to-day actions with their colleagues and the work they do with our guests across SLPC properties. We will provide staff with a toolkit, where you will find foundational training and additional resources to support continuous learning about systemic racism as well as racial discrimination to be better equipped to identify and challenge racism.
The Anti-Racism Directorate (ARD) was established to fight systemic racism and promote racial equity to help all Ontarians, including everyone working within the Ontario Public Service. Systemic racism creates unfair outcomes for Indigenous, Black and racialized people. The ARD and ministry partners are working to identify and eliminate barriers caused by systemic racism so that everyone can reach their potential and fully participate in society. When we target and remove systemic barriers faced by the most disadvantaged communities, everyone benefits.
The following encompases resources on anti-racism, anti-Indigenous, anti-black, anti-asian, antisemitism and Islamophobia.
The SLPC celebrates, honours, and recognizes the diversity of culture, history, rich traditions as well as the outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. We are committed to doing our part to achieve meaningful and lasting reconciliation. The following page of resources is an opportunity for SLPC staff members to take some time to learn about inspiring Indigenous peoples who have helped shape Canadian history.
