Anti-Black racism is a specific form of racism, rooted in the colonial history and practice of enslavement, that continues to impact the lives of Black people, regardless of whether they have a specific lineage to the enslaved in Canada, or if they are recent comers to Canada. Policies and practices rooted in Canadian institutions such as, health care, education, and justice mirror and reinforce beliefs, attitudes, prejudice, stereotyping and/or discrimination towards people of African descent and lead to a lack of equitable access, opportunities and outcomes for Black people. 

The NCCDH has partnered with the Black Health Education Collaborative to present a 3-part webinar series on anti-Black racism and public health. This interactive series will explore how anti-Black racism impacts health and identify concrete opportunities for public health action.
