Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Resources

This resources list is the first phase in the rollout of a comprehensive initiative by the CCBA and provincial/territorial craft brewers associations to address and combat all forms of discrimination in our industry.

The list is by no means exhaustive. It is meant to be a starting point for developing a deeper understanding of racism and discrimination and the ways we can ultimately reduce and eliminate it. It includes tools that individuals can use to educate themselves, and craft breweries can use to engage their employee teams in this work.

We will update and edit this list on an ongoing basis. If you would like to recommend resources that you’re familiar with, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.

Thank you for your interest in this important issue.
