Who are we

The Anti-Racist Cooperation (ARC) Hub is a dedicated coordination secretariat and a resource center for the sector: the ARC Hub is hosted by Cooperation Canada and funded by Global Affairs Canada. Our goal is to help Canadian international development and humanitarian organizations improve their ability integrate anti-racism and intersectional feminism into their work in the creation of resources, knowledge sharing spaces, networks of support and trainings.

PRINCIPLES & APPROACHES

People centered

Building community will be the root of our success in anti-racism in the sector. The ARC Hub will bring together organizations, colleagues, partners, vendors, and volunteers, specifically including the experiences of people affected by what is often a lack of anti-racist thought and principles.

Responsive

The work of the ARC Hub will remain flexible, responding to the needs of the international cooperation sector. In Annual reports on sector progress will inform robust and malleable processes and tools to support our collective growth. This feedback loop allows us to collect and analyze data against established benchmarks. This will be fundamental to making sure our work is up to date, responsive and we are consciously informing the sector and improving our ability to grow the impact of the ARC Hub

Collaborative

We aim to do our work in collaboration with the sector. Within the ARC Hub, we know that people are our most significant resource – in the sector and beyond. We are excited to explore how we can learn from and resource each other to build a better sector.
