International Minorities Expert: Canada OK, Just Racist

Relief Web – The report of the Independent Expert on minority issues on her mission to Canada (13 to 23 October 2009) (A/HRC/13/23/Add.2) notes that, while Canada has an impressive constitutional and legislative framework in the area of equality and non-discrimination and numerous policy initiatives to promote multiculturalism, significant and persistent problems affect persons belonging to ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities, including negative experiences at school; higher unemployment; relatively poor access to services; racial profiling by police; and low representation in political structures and institutions.
