Ontario Black Youth Action Plan

Through the Ontario Black Youth Action Plan, the government is increasing opportunities for Black children, youth and families. Ontario is providing new services and supports in communities across the province, including:

The plan -- announced in February 2017 in alignment with A Better Way Forward: Ontario's 3-Year Anti-Racism Strategic Plan -- will help eliminate systemic, race-based disparities for Black children and youth.

When fully implemented, the four-year, $47 million plan will support 10,800 Black children, youth and their families annually, in schooling, postsecondary education and employment, as well as those in conflict with the law.

Investments will be available based on need in communities including the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, Ottawa and Windsor.
