“I couldn’t imagine what I would do if I didn’t have a connection to my supports right now,” said Chris Morton, an outreach worker with the primary care outreach team at Kitchener Downtown CHC. It’s a sentiment that most of us can relate to.

February is Black History Month, and the Alliance will be spending time over the next four weeks looking back, ahead and celebrating Black Canadians' resilience and survival through slavery, colonization and racism while creating strong, vibrant communities. We'll celebrate Black leadership in Ontario's health system, and some of the innovations communities have built to combat inequity and systemic racism. And we'll also look ahead to what still needs to be done, and what the future could hold.
