Priority Projects

Anti-Racism Resource Centre

The Hamilton Anti-Racism Resource Centre (HARRC), a pilot project involving the City of Hamilton, McMaster University, and the Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion (HCCI). HARRC was launched on April 4, 2018 as a pilot project to gather information regarding racism related issues occurring in Hamilton, in order to better inform Council on community issues and concerns so that it may strive to eliminate racism and racism related issues in our City. 

This centre has been paused for a period of up to 12 months to allow the partners to review and renew plans to achieve its envisioned goals.

Public Engagement

A community engagement plan has been developed in an effort to establish a more robust and relevant program for the residents of the City of Hamilton. These efforts include public consultations events, information tables at upcoming festivals, fairs, and events, as well as online survey tools.

The City of Hamilton and its partners recognize the importance of diversity and inclusion to our present and future success as a place to live, work and play, and we are looking forward to engaging our community in consultation to better understand the lived experiences of racism and the current needs and racism related issues faced by the residents of the Hamilton.
