The Black Experience Project began with a central question “What does it mean to be Black in the GTA?” From there, the study embarked on a journey of answering this question in an authentic and respectful way.

Launched in 2010 and completed in 2017, the Black Experience Project was led by the Environics Institute for Survey Research, in partnership with the United Way of Toronto and York Region, the YMCA of the Greater Toronto Area, Ryerson’s Diversity Institute, and the Jean Augustine Chair in Education, Community and Diaspora at York University. The panel of experts and stakeholders will discuss the main findings of the study and its impact from the perspectives of academic research, community, and policy.
