The Canadian Race Relations Foundation is a federal crown corporation dedicated to the facilitation of the development of sharing and application of knowledge and expertise to contribute to the elimination of racism and all forms of racial discrimination in Canadian society. We do this by bringing people together and providing educational resources and events for the public. For this reason, the emergence of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic concerns us very deeply and we are also doing our part in slowing the spread of the virus.
We are fulfilling our responsibilities to the communities we serve by taking the following measures until further notice:
(1) CRRF’s staff will work from home, and to collaborate with one another and with our partners by e-mails to facilitate social distancing, starting March 17, 2020 until further notice.
(2) Business travel will be suspended for the next three weeks.
(3) Our Canada Lecture cancelled in Winnipeg this month.
(4) All March public events are cancelled.
We are carefully monitoring analyses by the World Health Organization and by Canadian public health authorities, regional authorities, and we are following their advice, as well as guidelines from the federal government.
