WELCOME TO THE
Led by The Canadian Council of Business Leaders Against Anti-Black Systemic Racism, The BlackNorth Initiative is on a mission to end anti-Black systemic racism throughout all aspects of our lives by utilizing a business first mindset.
We believe that if corporate Canada can boldly take on the challenge to add gender diversity to Canadian boardrooms and executive suites by declaring policies, setting specific targets, and holding itself accountable, it can do the same work to create better representation for Black Canadians.
Leaders from close to 500 Canadian companies, totaling $1.3 trillion in value, including both public and private sector, major banks, insurance companies, law firms, government, and the largest asset managers and institutional investors in the nation are behind us as we engage in our Montreal summit on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm. Together, we are holding major industry leaders accountable to take action and reshape corporate structures that uphold anti-Black systemic racism against Black Canadians.

Influential Canadian business leaders committed to the removal of systemic barriers negatively affecting the lives of Black Canadians participated in the BlackNorth Initiative Virtual Summit.
Together, we can make Canada a global leader in the fight against anti-Black systemic racism in all its forms.
