Toronto is for everyone.

Everyone who calls Toronto home needs to be safe from hate – every race, religion, national and ethnic origin, colour, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age and ability. To ensure the well-being and safety of all, the City of Toronto is working to stop hate, including ending the promotion and spread of hatred and violence.

Be a part of ending hate in our city. Discover resources and initiatives designed to enhance community safety, foster empathy and address hate crimes to secure the well-being of our communities and ensure that everyone knows they belong here.

Acts of hate are committed to intimidate, harm or terrify victims and the identifiable groups to which they belong. Victims of hate are targeted on the sole basis of who they are and/or the groups to which they belong.

If you are subjected to, witness or are aware of a suspected hate crime:

  • Keep all relevant material/records to support potential investigations.
  • If you feel safe doing so, call the police immediately. In an emergency call 911. Otherwise, call the TPS hate crimes unit at 416-808-3500.
  • To report an incident of hate-motivated graffiti, visit the Toronto Police Services page.
