Anti Racism / Anti Hate: Stories to Heal Relationships

The answers to this survey will be used as part of the “Stories to Heal Relationships” project, funded through the Anti-Racism Directorate of Ontario’s Ministry of the Solicitor General. This project will collect stories and experiences through surveys such as this one about interactions between Indigenous peoples and different service providers in Northern Ontario, specifically interactions with police. The responses to this survey will be used and incorporated into anti-racism and anti-hate presentations and training materials which will be delivered to the Ontario Provincial Police and to other police services in Northern Ontario.

This survey will be administered on an anonymous basis, and participation in this survey is entirely voluntary. The Nishnawbe-Aski Legal Services Corporation (NALSC) will not accept any liability resulting from the use of any information collected as part of the “Stories to Heal Relationships” project.
