Black Economic Empowerment Stream – Black Youth Action Plan

Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Multiculturalism

The Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Multiculturalism announced a $14 million investment to the Economic Empowerment Stream of the Black Youth Action Plan to support Black youth in achieving social and economic success.

The Black Youth Action Plan (BYAP) was created to help address persistent outcome disparities for Black children, youth, and families across life stages. In 2020, the Government announced new investments to sustain existing BYAP programs and to enhance the plan with a new economic empowerment stream.

To support community stakeholders in building a shared understanding of evidence-based interventions and outcomes under this stream, YouthREX developed an Outcomes Framework for the Economic Empowerment of Black Youth in Ontario.

The economic empowerment stream of the Black Youth Action Plan supports Black youth and young adults to build their careers and achieve economic success. There are three funding initiatives:

Initiatives funded by this stream will help support Black Ontarians to overcome barriers and equitably participate in a future-oriented economy, by connecting them with resources such as:

  • essential and technical skills development
  • high-quality job opportunities
  • entrepreneurship supports
  • sector-led innovations
