In September 2020, the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, along with other municipalities that make up Niagara Region, joined the Coalition of Inclusive Municipalities and committed to respecting, protecting, and promoting human rights and diversity.

An inclusive community:

  • values diversity, meaning that it welcomes people from a wide range of ages, races, ethnicities, genders, physical and intellectual abilities, religions, sexual orientations, and educational backgrounds.
  • respects all its members, gives them full access to resources and decision-making processes, and promotes equal treatment and opportunity.
  • works to eliminate all forms of discrimination.
  • responds quickly to racist and other discriminatory incidents.
