Community Response to Ontario Carding Regulations


Community groups are deeply concerned by Ontario's new regulations on carding and street checks by Police. The African Canadian Legal Clinic points out that the Regulation will not adequately protect African Canadians, and will not prohibit anti-Black racism and racial profiling. The Urban Alliance on Race Relations says that the regulations fall short addressing key issues of transparency and accountability by Police, and does not address the racial profiling of Black youth. The regulations were released on March 22, 2016 by the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services.
