Canadian Race Relations Foundation

In 1988, the Government of Canada and the National Association of Japanese Canadians signed the Japanese Canadian Redress Agreement that acknowledged that the treatment of Japanese Canadians during and after World War II was unjust and violated principles of human rights. Under the terms of the agreement, the federal government created a Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF), to "foster racial harmony and cross-cultural understanding and help to eliminate racism." The purpose of the CRRF is to facilitate throughout Canada the development, sharing and application of knowledge and expertise in order to contribute to the elimination of racism and all forms of racial discrimination in Canadian society.
