The Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF)’s biennial National Conference will take place in Toronto on October 26-27, 2016. The conference, through its focus – Realizing an Inclusive Canada: 2017 and Beyond - will build collective knowledge and generate new ideas for deeper exploration, while exploring issues that remain unresolved and identifying emerging challenges.
The conference will bring together a community of thought leaders to explore the challenges of racism and discrimination and the opportunities for us to work in and across sectors to reduce and eliminate its impact. We look forward to creating a program in which participants will benefit from the perspectives of educators and academics, youth and settlement/immigration workers, law enforcement professionals, politicians and diversity and inclusion specialists.
The conference will feature presentations by practitioners and thought leaders dedicated to strengthening our understanding and acceptance of Canadian values, belonging, promoting Canadian identity and recognizing the mutuality of rights and responsibilities inherent in good citizenship.
Your presentation/workshop submission should reflect the themes of the conference, including:
• Cities as hubs of diversity
• Community safety and security
• Contemporary racism
• Faith and Religion
• Immigration and Refugees
• Multiculturalism and intercultural relations
Through these themes we look forward to exploring their intersections with indigenous people, diverse communities, youth, the business and public sectors, policing and the media. For format details, and to submit, please click here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2016NC_Submissions
