Our home: Diversity and inclusion in Clarington

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

People are at the heart of our community. We should all be treated fairly and without prejudice, regardless of skin colour, race, background, religion, gender, gender identity, ability, or life choices. Clarington is our home, and we should all feel like we belong in our community. Issues of racism and discrimination are at the forefront of our society and the media. Globally, these issues are eating away at the fabric of society.

It’s important to start a conversation to learn from others and their experiences so that we can understand one another. Our shared voices and lived experiences can ignite change and bring us together. Clarington is our home; let’s make it better.

Many have experienced or witnessed acts of discrimination and anti-Black racism in the community and in the media. Here in Canada, our path to Truth and Reconciliation continues as we continue to heal and address the legacy of the residential schools. While our journey to reconciliation is far from over, sharing the stories and understanding the impacts is crucial.

The Municipality of Clarington, supported by its Diversity Advisory Committee, has created this platform. We want to use this portal to start a conversation, to build shared understanding, and create a legacy for meaningful change in our society.

We encourage all of our residents to share your lived experiences, and your stories related to discrimination, racism and injustice. Tell us your ideas on how we can combat racism and promote inclusivity. By sharing our collective experiences and opening a dialogue, we can start a wave of change and understanding to promote equity and respect in our Clarington, our home. Please note that the stories shared in this forum may also be used on Clarington's social media accounts to help start a community-wide dialogue.
