Black In Quebec
Black in Quebec will offer an in-depth research study into the English Speaking Black Community in Quebec. The purpose of the project is to provide Black Community Organizations with information and data on their communities, which will give them the opportunity to cite accurate and credible sources in their respective works i.e. grant applications, work strategies, and community portraits.
Furthermore, we aim to use this information to increase the quality of engagement with the community and to inform our advocacy that includes raising awareness of issues facing the community while building solidarity and strengthening the vitality of our community. The findings from our research will also provide the Private, Educational, and Public Sector Institutions with information regarding the English Speaking Black population here in Quebec.
