Tune in for an important conversation on the Black Experience in Canada and the U.S. between Consul General Rana Sarkar and Debra Thompson, Associate Professor & Canada Research Chair in Racial Inequalities in Democratic Societies at McGill University. 

Through this event, we hope to generate insights into how both social practices and government policies can be employed to combat racism, foster equitable innovation, and ultimately produce outputs that are representative of society.

We Support Canadian Small Businesses and Affiliates. #ShopSmallBayArea

We continue to experience backlogs and delays for postal service and shipping. 

If you can’t visit shops in-person, or if shipping is out of the question, consider gift cards to your favourite local shops.

The DML launched this Pop-up Market to provide the Canadian community with a curated list of (primarily) Bay Area Canadian-owned/operated/themed shopping.
