Community and Race Relations Committee

In response to racially motivated hate crimes towards International students at Trent University and Fleming College in the 1980s, the Community and Race Relations Committee of Peterborough (CRRC) emerged as a non-profit, community-based organization with a commitment to promoting positive and equitable race relations in the City of Peterborough.

CRRC supports the basic principle that all individuals in Canada are equal in dignity and rights. CRRC’s strategies are aimed at identifying and eliminating all forms of institutional and systemic discrimination, with recognition to the ways in which all forms of oppression intersect with racism.

CRRC is available to assist persons or groups on matters relating to racism.

CRRC provides advocacy, consultation, capacity building and public education services for the purpose of promoting greater understanding of race related issues.

Students are always welcome to join us, and can get involved as general volunteers, by joining the Board of Directors and/or CRRC committees, and by participating in our community events.

We also offer free workshop and training opportunities to student clubs and groups in the areas of anti-oppression, anti-racism, allyship and much more!

For more information about our services or how to get involved, please contact the CRRC Coordinator at, by phone at 705-304-4318, or by visiting us in Room 204 at Sadleir House (751 George Street North).
