Belonging and Racial Identity in Halton

Oakville Community Foundation

The Belonging and Racial Identity in Halton report is a community-led project that further explores how to provide First Nations, Inuit and Metis and racialized individuals with a greater sense of inclusion and belonging in all areas of community life. The report is the culmination of a local survey that sought the thoughts and opinions of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour who live, work and spend time in Halton Region.

To support the findings in the report and present them in a way that is digestible to students, accompanying videos have been created that walk through areas such as Inclusivity in Education, Cultural Displays, Inclusivity in the Workplace, Healthcare, Rebuilding the Justice System and more. The videos also outline a number of recommendations and include Discussion Topics for teachers.

Please register below to receive the two-part video series put together by award-winning media production company Falling Motion.

Community Classroom brings free arts, culture, heritage and environmental programs to students attending Oakville's publicly funded schools through in class visits and field trips.

Given that the look of the classroom is now very different, the Foundation has shifted its programming to a virtual platform and is available to not only Oakville students, but any student attending a school within the Halton District and Halton Catholic School Boards.

For any questions, please contact classroom@theocf.org.
