Event description


This NCCDH on-demand webinar focuses on the importance of advancing racial health equity.

Recognizing the importance of using a racial equity lens in addressing all the requirements set out in the Health Equity Standard under the Ontario Public Health Standards, this on-demand webinar will describe the different forms and levels of racism, why racism is a public health issue and the public health roles for racial equity.

This content explores the meaning of embracing a decolonial, anti-racist practice, and identifies the tools needed to begin on that journey.

Listeners will learn about:

  • institutional, systemic and individual racism and their impact on health;
  • intersectionality, anti-oppression, allyship and systems change and how these relate to anti-racist action;
  • how racial equity fits with the Ontario Public Health Foundational Standards; and
  • public health’s role in leading racial equity work.

Organizer National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health

Organizer of PHESC 6: Racial health equity: Embracing a decolonial, anti-racist practice

Integrating health equity and the social determinants of health into Canadian public health practice.


At the National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (NCCDH), we provide the Canadian public health community with knowledge and resources to take action on the social determinants of health, to close the gap between those who are most and least healthy.


We work with the public health field to move knowledge into action—in practice, in policy and in decision making—to achieve societal improvements that result in health for all.


We are one of six national collaborating centres funded through a Public Health Agency of Canada program.

We are hosted at St. Francis Xavier University (StFX) in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, which has a rich history in social justice beginning in the 1920s with the Antigonish Movement through to the founding of the Coady International Institute after WWII. The Institute is well respected worldwide as a centre for leadership education about community-based development. Situating the NCCDH here furthers StFX’s deep commitment to applying knowledge to social change.
