THE BLACK OPPORTUNITY FUND

Established in 2020, the Black Opportunity Fund (“BOF”) is a dynamic partnership between businesses, philanthropists, foundations, and the Black community to combat the impact of systemic anti-Black racism in Canada. The BOF was founded by a national coalition of over 50 Black executives and leaders dedicated to lending their expertise to the Black community.  The BOF will catalyze the cultural, economic, and political growth required to enable Canada’s institutions, governments, and businesses to embrace greater diversity at all levels. The BOF will broadly prioritize initiatives around education, healthcare, youth, women, social justice, immigration, technology, entrepreneurship, and politics that impact the quality of life in the Black community.
