Table 7: Comparison Between Current and Proposed Programming


What we are doing now

What we want to do in the future

Responding to first World Conference on Racism in Durban, South Africa (2001) Align with evolution in government’s approach to addressing discrimination
Broad horizontal approach but with a diffuse and weak impact Critical mass of capacity within CIC to generate a more measurable impact
“One size fits all” programming More targeted, evidence-based initiatives that address specific challenges facing communities at higher risk of discrimination
Limited interfaith programming Address emerging issues in interfaith/intra-faith understanding
Limited programming aimed at imported conflicts and imported discrimination Address tensions and pre-existing prejudices within minority communities
Heavy focus on short-term integration programming (99% versus 1% for long-term) More balanced approach to building an integrated, socially cohesive society
