Be Part of the National Action Plan on Combatting Hate

Current status: Closed

Questionnaire closes May 8, 2022

About these consultations

In Canada, diversity is a fact, but inclusion is a choice. We know that hatred targeting people based on their race, faith, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or any other personal characteristic, is destructive.

The Government of Canada is taking necessary actions to address the troubling rise of hate crimes and hate groups, not just because of the devastating consequences they have on the victims and their families, but also because they can divide communities and increase insecurity nationwide.

That’s why, the government is launching consultations for the first ever National Action Plan on Combatting Hate. We want to ensure that people across Canada, particularly those with lived experience of hate, have their say in defining how this action plan will deliver tangible change.
