Black Lives Matter

Equality. Inclusion. Social justice.

These are the values we work towards every day. These are values are under continual threat in Canada and around the world. Today, we stand with the Black community—our families, friends, colleagues and neighbours—and we challenge ourselves to listen more, to feel uncomfortable, to learn more about what needs to change, to amplify voices that need to be heard, and to be more active allies in the fight against anti-Black racism and discrimination in all its forms. We understand that these are deep-rooted, systemic and inter-generational issues and the onus is on us to address and acknowledge the pain and discrimination felt by Black, Indigenous, and other visible minority communities. We cannot, as humankind, afford to wait any longer. We need to do better—each and every one of us - and we need to do it now.
