Coalition of Inclusive Communities—another step in the right direction

On January 25, 2021, Guelph City Council unanimously endorsed a resolution for the City of Guelph to join the Coalition of Inclusive Municipalities.

This is a big step along the City’s path in helping to rid Guelph’s community of systemic racism and make the city a more welcoming and equitable place to live, work and play.

The Coalition is a network of close to 90 Canadian governments committed to diversity and inclusion that is coordinated by the Canadian Commission for the United Nation’s Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Working towards the 10 common commitments of the Coalition will ensure the City does its part to help create an inclusive community free of racism and discrimination.
