Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Resources

We are sharing book titles, articles, videos and podcasts to help support our members' continuing work of anti-racism and equity, and to help deepen our understanding of Canada’s diverse communities.

This Black History Month we are excited to share stories, events, articles, films and more.
