The Data Standards for the Identification and Monitoring of Systemic Racism, also known as Ontario’s Anti-Racism Data Standards (Standards) were established to help identify and monitor systemic racism and racial disparities within the public sector.

The Standards establish consistent, effective practices for producing reliable information to support evidence-based decision-making and public accountability to help eliminate systemic racism and promote racial equity.

The Government of Ontario is committed to helping to create an inclusive and equitable society for all Ontarians. By identifying and monitoring systemic racial disparities, public sector organizations will be better able to close gaps, eliminate barriers, and advance the fair treatment of everyone.
