Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his cabinet has created a summer work plan to draft policies to tackle systemic racism in Canada.

"Our goal is to come up with strong policies that will help eliminate barriers facing Indigenous peoples, racialized people, and persons with disabilities," Trudeau told a press conference today.

Cabinet ministers will examine policies that would affect their individual mandates, Trudeau said.
