Government begins anti-hate initiative

The federal Ministry of Housing and Diversity and Inclusion has begun a joint initiative with the Canadian Anti-Hate Network intended to counter racism in schools. The effort consists of a package of materials called “Confronting and Preventing Hate in Canadian Schools.” It is intended to provide a comprehensive anti-racism education program to help educators, parents and communities identify, confront and prevent hate in schools nationally. The project is being funded through the Government of Canada's Anti-Racism Action Program.

“Hatred in any form is unacceptable and has no place in Canada,” said Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Housing and Diversity and Inclusion. “The increase of hate-motivated groups and ideologies is a disturbing reality in our country that we have a responsibility to address. That is why our government is supporting the efforts of organizations like the Canadian Anti-Hate Network to create real solutions to confront and prevent hate. Together, we will build a safer and more inclusive Canada for everyone.”
