Agencies Dealing With Racism and Hate

* Most municipalities have a Committee on Community and Race Relations that deals with these issues. In addition, most have Race Relations Divisions or departments within the municipal government that can offer assistance.

* Your provincial government should have an Anti-Racism Secretariat in the Ministry of Citizenship and/or Culture to offer assistance and programs in combatting hate and promoting anti-racist education.

* You may also need to contact the Attorney General's Ministry or the Race Relations and Policing Unit of the Solicitor General's Ministry if the incident has legal or policing implications.

* The Multiculturalism program in the federal government of Canadian Heritage includes anti-racist initiatives; and the Ministries of Justice, Immigration and the Solicitor General also have useful information and expertise.

* The Provincial Human Rights Commission investigates complaints of individuals who are victims of discrimination based on race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

* The Canadian Human Rights Commission investigates complaints in their jurisdiction, such as telephone lines, electronic media and federal agencies.

* Contact community based organizations that can mobilize their members, conduct anti-racist training in schools, and can assist individual victims and communities.
