Black Health and Well-Being Strategy

Status: In Progress (2018 – 2021)


Our Challenge:

Black communities in Canada face disproportionately poor outcomes across the social determinants of health and indicators of wellbeing.

Our Approach:

Build a targeted strategy that centres the most vulnerable in our communities facing multiple barriers: youth living in poverty, children and youth in care, people living with disabilities, LGBTQ+, trans and gender nonconforming youth, as well as older adult and aging populations.

Our Impact:

Through an iterative action plan that is measurable, multi-generational, and focused on building community connectedness, we will affect legislative and public policy change at multiple levels, and drive transformative community based action to improve the health and well-being of Black communities in Ontario.

Our Black Health and Well-Being Strategy is focused on moving the dial on the following: focus areas

Social Determinants of Health

Health Inequities

Anti-Black Racism

Building Connected Communities
