Anti-Black Racism Plan

The administration is co-creating an Anti-Black Racism Action Plan alongside Edmonton’s Black and racialized communities. This work advances our Anti-Racism Strategy to build equity, address systemic racism, and create an anti-racist corporation and City.

The draft Anti-Black Racism Action Plan is now available for review and input by City of Edmonton staff and community members. You’re encouraged to share your feedback to ensure the action plan and its recommendations reflect and address your experiences and needs. Your valuable input will inform needed changes in the report and allow the consultants to refine the recommendations before the final report is submitted to Administration in June.

You can submit feedback directly to the consultants until May 31 by emailing Visit for more information about the Anti-Racism Strategy.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the engagement sessions earlier this year for the Anti-Black Racism Action Plan. Click here to see the “What We Heard” report that captures the input shared with the consultants during those sessions by community and City of Edmonton staff. Those voices were essential in shaping and informing the recommendations in the draft Anti-Black Racism Action Plan and your feedback on that draft will ensure the final action plan is relevant to those most impacted.
