About the Black Opportunity Fund
In 2020, a diverse team of Black Canadians, from around the
country, came together to create a new way to serve and empower
Black communities. They established the Black Opportunity Fund (BOF)
– with an ambitious goal of raising $1.5 billion in 10 years – to
fund Black-led initiatives.
Black Opportunity Fund will be a catalyst to dismantle anti-Black
racism by supporting the cultural, social, economic and political
changes required to advance diversity and inclusion at all levels in
Canada’s institutions, governments, and businesses.
The Black Opportunity Fund is a new approach, leveraging
partnerships between government, Black communities, corporations,
philanthropic foundations and individuals to drive a historic
transformation of Canada’s Black communities.
