Ottawa, June 4, 2012 — A. Raoul Nembhard has been appointed to the Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF)’s Board of Directors for a three-year part-time term, Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney announced today.

The CRRF is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of a Chair and up to 11 other directors appointed by the Governor in Council.

An Ottawa-based Jamaican-Canadian business consultant, Mr. Nembhard has served a wide variety of clients throughout Canada, the U.S., the Caribbean and Africa in the private, public and voluntary sectors. Mr. Nembhard oversaw special mediation programs designed to reduce ethnic tension among the student population in the Greater Toronto Area. The program resulted in a reduced number of student suspensions, reduced inner-school conflict, and improved race relations between staff and students. Mr. Nembhard holds a Bachelor of Arts from York University and is currently completing a Master of Business Administration at Liverpool University in England.

Canada is internationally recognized for its commitment to human rights and for its fight against all forms of discrimination, including racism. The Canadian Race Relations Foundation is Canada’s leading agency dedicated to the elimination of racism in the country.
