Systemic Discrimination

Stimulate thought, conversation, and produce educational information on the biggest challenges facing Canada today and tomorrow.

Systemic Discrimination in Canada

The historic roots of systemic discrimination in Canada exist throughout a vast array of economic, social, and educational institutions in our country. They are imbedded in the practices and behaviours of our laws, culture, and society, and serve to perpetuate the social and economic inequalities that affect racialized persons living in Canada. While there are some who refute the notion that systemic discrimination exists in our country, there is significant statistical data, in addition to considerable anecdotal evidence that strongly suggests this is a serious issue that many marginalized Canadians deal with in their daily lives.

Public Policy in Canada

The Better Canada Institute (BCI) is a start-up think tank that aims to fill the gaps in our public discourse, bridge the divide between the public, academics, and policy makers, and develop creative, evidence-based solutions to the significant problems facing our nation.

BCI is an incubator of ideas, policy, and important conversations. Each month, we will bring together top leaders and professionals from across Canada to engage with some of the most important policy conversations facing our communities and our country. We strive to make public policy in Canada accessible to all levels of interest.
