INTRODUCTION:

OCASI invites qualified individuals or consulting firms to submit a proposal for a project coordination contract for a new national initiative on equity and racial justice, based on a trilateral North American agreement. OCASI was formed in 1978 to act as a collective voice for immigrant serving agencies and to coordinate responses to shared needs and concerns. Its membership consists of more than 245 autonomous community-based organizations across Ontario. OCASI champions equity and human rights for immigrants and refugees through advocacy,collective action, collaborative planning, research, capacity-building, and information and knowledge transfer.

Project

OCASI is now supporting a project that will build a network of experts and organizations involved in addressing decoloniality, ant-racism, equity and hate across Canada, in local communities and in diverse social sectors, i.e., education, business, the arts, public services, media, health, labour, law enforcement and justice. The network will be involved with the North American Partnership for Equity and Racial Justice.
The purpose of the Network will be to facilitate the exchange of information, share best practices and innovative strategies, and facilitate the pursuit of cross-border initiatives developed across the three countries for advancing equity and racial justice in public policies and societies, and help identify further action areas for the Partnership. The Network of Experts will be an ongoing working group composed of civil society leaders, including representatives of the community, business, academic, education, philanthropic, labour, arts, sport, and health sectors.
