Thirteen Canadian municipalities
form a coalition
against racism and discrimination
In Calgary on June 1, 2007, 13 municipalities from across Canada formed a coalition and signed a declaration against racism and discrimination.
Also on June 1, 2007, at a meeting chaired by the Alberta Human Rights and Citizenship Commission's Director of Education and Commission Services, representatives of signatory municipalities, partners and funders held the first administrative meeting of the coalition.
The Alberta Commission, a member of the Pan-Canadian Working Group, played a leadership role in organizing and hosting both meetings, and the Chief Commissioner attended the founding meeting, also representing the Canadian Association of Statutory Human Rights Agencies.
