Black Men in Canada

Inspired by the murder of George Floyd, the many Canadian black men who took to social media to express their sadness, anger and despair, and the resulting sense of brotherhood among black men, SHIFTER is launching its first annual Outstanding Black Men in Canada list.

It’s time to honour and celebrate the black sons, fathers, leaders, and entrepreneurs who are having an impact at home, at work, in the community, and in the country.

Canadians are invited to nominate deserving men from across Canada. Voting closes on June 14. The long list of nominees will be shortened by SHIFTER’s editorial team. The short list will then be voted on by our jury. Winners will be announced the week of Fathers’ Day.
