“The Final Report of the Task Force on Campus Racism” is a report released by The Canadian Federation of Students: Ontario. The Task Force report, consisting of nine members with various experience related to racism and racial discrimination, examined racism in Ontario’s post- secondary institutions. After 17 hearings on 14 campuses The Task Force, identified four key themes of racism: “individual and systemic racism in campus life; institutional racism in hiring and curriculum; institutional racism in university policy and governance; and systematic racism in broader society.” Not only does the report shed light up on racism faced by racialized students in various forms from classroom to campus life, it also gives recommendations to address individual, institutional and societal racism. The recommendations seek to improve learning, be inclusive of racialized students on campuses, and create a safe learning environment for everyone.
