The Blackness in Canada Project

What does it mean to be Black in Canada? 

The goal of this project is to conduct a landmark national survey of Canada’s Black population as an ethnoracial identity. The primary question we address is: What does it mean to be Black in Canada? This research project will investigate the Black Canadian population as a national ethnoracial identity and determine the most promising approaches to alleviate anti-Black racism experienced by Black Canadians. Our aim is to uncover what it means to be Black in Canada by focusing on Black people’s actual lived experiences in such areas as education, child welfare, criminal justice and the labour market.
