Winnipeg CMARD's Action Plan
"Inclusion and Respect for All Winnipeg"
Winnipeg CMARD has created an Action Plan for the City of Winnipeg to uphold the 10 Commitments promoted by the Canadian Coalition of Municipalities Against Racism and Discrimination (CCMARD).
This action plan will assist the citizens, employers and community groups of Winnipeg, including City of Winnipeg employees in selected departments, in creating more inclusive and respectful communities.
Winnipeg CMARD will implement two main strategies to address these commitments; Education and Building Capacity.
We aim to create a Public Awareness Campaign for the citizens of Winnipeg. This includes website information dedicated to anti-racism and discrimination, a research paper on the status of racism and discrimination in Winnipeg, resource information for victims of racism and discrimination, and special events promoting the values of inclusion.
Winnipeg CMARD will help local employers, businesses and community organizations achieve "Safe Harbour" status.
Safe Harbour's Respect for All program is a national initiative which creates opportunities for businesses, institutions, agencies and entire municipalities to create safer, more welcoming communities that support diversity and reject discrimination.
