A Black trade unionist, community organizer and activist, Bromley Lloyd Armstrong was a pivotal figure in the early anti-discrimination campaigns in
Ontario that led to Canada’s first anti-discrimination laws. As a self-described “blood and guts” ally of the working poor, he demonstrated a lifelong
commitment to the trade union movement and the battle against disadvantage and discrimination.

For more than six decades, Armstrong worked for human rights, helping to generate civic and government support for racial equality and advocating for human rights reforms in public policy. The Bromley Lloyd Armstrong Awards were established in 2005 to celebrate his legacy and
recognize those who have taken up the mantle within our movement.
