Project Details: White Paper
Afropolitan Canada has recently undergone a strategic objective re-alignment to improve their community work.
PGI consultants will assist in developing a white paper for the organization on wealth disparity within the Toronto Black Francophone communities.
The paper will:
Research various groups of Black Youth populations in Ontario (Francophone African Canadians, Francophone Caribbean, Canadians first generation, new immigrants)
Contribute to the definition of “Black Youth”
Explore issues related to immigration, education, language barriers, etc.
Map services available to support their financial growth and identify how these services can be improved
Answer the research question “How do the Black communities feel about the term Franco-Ontarian? Do they feel like they belong to the community? Why or Why not?”
This project will support Afropolitan’s mandate and provide substantial data to potential funders to address the issues defined above.
The White Paper will be a useful tool to start meaningful conversations with stakeholders that have the power to create positive change within the Black Francophone communities of Ontario.
