2021 – A Series of Virtual Events
The National Black Canadians Summit was created out of a call made from emerging artists of African descent, from Halifax, Toronto and Montreal, to confederate the efforts of Black individuals from across Canada, in order to see better outcomes for the community at large. To make this an inclusive and action-oriented summit, we are working closely with local communities, lawmakers, private sector and different institutions.
Our primary goal is to amplify the voices of the Black communities in Canada, to highlight their contributions to this land and to act to significantly reduce the obstacles they are faced with on their paths to success.
With the outbreak of the global pandemic, we were required to postpone the gathering planned for Halifax to March 2022. The Series kicks-off on April 2021 and will convene and mobilize the national Black community to move forward and send us on our way to NBCS 2022. This Virtual Series wants to engage Canadians in conversations around inclusion access to opportunities and solutions to anti-Black racism.
