Unpacking Hate Crime: Hate, Bias, and Community Expectations
This workshop will focus on the distinction between hate crimes and hate incidents in Canada. While both hate crimes and incidents impact the community, police services are limited in their involvement with hate incidents (due to their non-criminal nature). This often creates confusion, mistrust, and feelings of resentment between communities impacted by hate and the police.
- The distinction between hate incidents and hate crimes
- Hate Crime legislation in Canada
- Challenges in addressing hate crimes and incidents
- Bias Awareness indicators

This will be a very interactive workshop. Participants will be encouraged to contribute in active dialogue and discussion.
