Race-Based Data

In 2017, the Ontario Anti-Racism Act came into effect, providing a framework for public sector organizations to identify and eliminate systemic racism. In addition, in 2018, the government of Ontario mandated the collection of race-based data. This data collection allows for public agencies to support the development of fair policies, equitable strategies, culturally appropriate resources for all communities and to help address the racism and discrimination that exist in government structures.

The Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is committed to providing services that are equitable and inclusive. Our new 5-year strategic plan outlines the various strategies and initiatives in place to support improved services to families from Black, Racialized, First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities.
