HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

This report was developed by the external Steering Group of Canada’s Black Justice Strategy and includes 114 recommendations to address anti-Black racism and systemic discrimination that has led to the overrepresentation of Black people in Canada’s criminal justice system, including recommendations concerning youth.

The recommendations in the report were informed by consultations and engagements led by 12 Black-led community-based organizations across Canada, as well as the results of the Justice Canada online survey responses.

The recommended actions in the report will inform the Government’s response – Canada’s Black Justice Strategy, to be developed and released by the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada on behalf of the Government of Canada.
