As an essential part of its work to raise awareness of Canadians and provide education on race relations issues in Canada, the CRRF periodically bestows recognition and awards for excellence in achievement with the purpose of promoting the elimination of racism and all forms of racial discrimination in the context of a common Canadian identity, belonging and mutuality of citizenship rights and responsibilities.

These awards are bestowed on the basis of information available to the CRRF at the time. The Board of CRRF may rescind any award to any recipient who is subsequently shown to have been involved in illegal, unethical or other actions that detract from this purpose.
