New report reveals growing income gap for racialized communities in Ontario
A new report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives explores the role of race and gender in Ontario’s growing income gap. The study includes an analysis of 2006 census data related to the labour market experiences of visible minority or racialized persons in Ontario. The study reveals that racialized Ontarians are far more likely to live in poverty, face unemployment and receive less pay for work than non-racialized Ontarians. Racialized women experience the greatest disparities. See “Ontario’s Growing Gap: The Role of Race and Gender,” June 2010, atwww.policyalternatives.ca.
