The Teaching of East and Southeast Asian Canadian History in Public Schools: An Ontario Case Study

This project will critically examine how East and Southeast Asian Canadian histories, experience and contributions are reflected in Ontario’s elementary and secondary school curricula and taught in Ontario public schools. It will add significant empirical data and knowledge to the fields of curriculum study, education equity, systemic racism and anti-racism education. It will also provide research-based support for curriculum development and delivery that address racism and promote racial equity, diversity and inclusion.

Representation of Chinese Canadian Leadership in the Greater Toronto Area

This study is the first of its kind that identifies the representation of Chinese Canadians in senior leadership positions in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), Canada’s largest metropolitan area with the most ethnically diverse population and workforce. This study also explores the observations and insights of Chinese Canadian leaders on their leadership journeys – the barriers and obstacles they have to overcome, the impact of systemic racism and personal biases on their career advancement, and possible strategies at the government and organizational levels to remove barriers and enhance workplace equity, diversity and inclusion.
