The Government of Ontario introduced the Ontario Black Youth Action Plan (OBYAP) in March 2017 with the goal of reducing disparities for Black children, youth, and families. Funded by the Government of Ontario, when fully implemented, OBYAP is intended to increase access to supports and opportunities for 10,800 Ontario Black children, youth, and their families across life stages, from early childhood to their transition to school and/or work.
One stream of OBYAP funding is for Innovative Supports for Black Parents (ISBP) which funds programs to enhance the availability of effective, culturally relevant, and culturally responsive parenting supports for Black parents and caregivers, with the goal of improving outcomes for Black children, youth, and their families.
Recognizing the need to evaluate the relevance, effectiveness, and outcomes of the ISBP initiative, the Ministry contracted with Turner Consulting Group Inc. to evaluate the initiative and to share the knowledge gained with the community, service providers, academics, and others.
