The Town of Whitby is launching a new project to better understand the current state of diversity, inclusivity and equity in how it delivers services to the community.

The project is called The IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Anti-Racism) Project – Whitby's Journey to Inclusivity. Its goal: to help the Town identify immediate- medium- and long-term steps the municipality can take to improve services for all residents, regardless of age, ability, race or background.
