Racial Equity

We all must continue to speak out, to listen, to stand united, and act in ways that contribute to the elimination of all forms of racism, overt and hidden, in our communities and our institutions.

Public Health Sudbury & Districts stands firmly in support of racial equity and in solidarity with all who work for it.

Racism has no place in society. Under the Ontario’s Human Rights Code, every person has the right to be free from racial discrimination and harassment. No one should be treated differently because of their race or other related grounds, such as ancestry, colour, place of origin, ethnic origin, citizenship, or creed.

In September 2019, Public Health Sudbury and Districts Board of Health endorsed an agency Racial Equity Action Framework. The framework was developed collaboratively to guide the organization’s efforts to advance racial equity.

Public Health Sudbury & Districts is also lead agency on a community-based initiative to address anti-Black racism.
