The Task Force fulfilled its terms of reference and its co-chairs submitted their Report on March 31, 2021.

In their report, the Anti-Black Racism Task Force delivered 56 recommendations to address anti-Black racism and blueprint a path forward to support a more inclusive and welcoming community for all.

The University of Toronto is committed to building lasting change, and we share the determination that no future Task Force should be needed to prompt the actions we already know are necessary.

To ensure transparency and accountability in our process of implementing the recommendations, we will create a new, dedicated website – an institutional hub to which members of the community can turn for updates on the implementation process, as well as other equity initiatives across the University. The site will list each Task Force recommendation and the actions undertaken. It will be operational no later than August 31, 2021, and it will be publicized beforehand.
