Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act: Resource & Open Letter

The Black Legal Action Centre (BLAC) has created a resource for our community on our rights and responsibilities under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA).

BLAC has also written an Open Letter to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario and the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police regarding the EMCPA.

“While we at BLAC understand and support the need for emergency measures, particularly given the unprecedented nature of COVID-19, BLAC is deeply concerned about the potential for some of the measures to result in the further criminalization of racialized and marginalized people, specifically Black people.” – Ruth Goba, Executive Director, BLAC
