The provincial government has introduced legislation that would hold public organizations accountable for addressing systemic racism in their policies and programs.

It would cover provincial ministries and agencies, the health-care sector, and social service providers.

They would be required to develop a public program and action plan using data the government has collected.

Compliance orders would be issued by the government if goals of the plan were not met.
