  2. Research and education: Promoting and increasing availability and accessibility of data, evidence, and community insights on race relations in Canada.
  3. Public awareness: Informing public policies by highlighting systemic and institutional barriers. 
  4. Cultural and intercultural community building: Creating cross-cultural opportunities through discussions and dialogue on race, religion, building awareness, and collaborations.  

In addition, projects or events should be designed to achieve one or more of the following results:

  • Increase public awareness of public policy issues related to race relations, anti-racism, or anti-hate nationally, regionally, or in local communities;
