Scarborough Charter

46 universities and colleges across Canada signed a charter pledging to fight anti-Black racism and to promote Black inclusion on November 18, 2021. It signified a historic move from discussions that began in October 2020 at the National Dialogues and Action for Inclusive Higher Education and Communities, to concrete action in addressing anti-Black racism and promoting black inclusion. Created with input and collaboration from students, faculty, staff, relevant organizations and Black political leaders, the Scarborough Charter serves as recognition of the realities of anti-Black racism and provides a concrete framework towards a more inclusive future.
