Questions about the status of funding for anti-racism initiatives are being raised in the Ontario legislature amid suggestions from the NDP that the government has earmarked $1,000 for anti-racism initiatives in 2019-20.

Treasury Board president Peter Bethlenfalvy tabled budget estimates last week, which provide a snapshot of the government's spending priorities over the next year.

Ontario's anti-racism directorate (ARD) was established in 2016 with a mission to hold public consultations on practices like carding and street checks. The directorate was also tasked with releasing reports that would help develop an anti-racism strategy for the province.
