Is Canada a racist country?

1 in 3 say yes.

An Angus Reid Institute study on race relations in Canada has found that 1 in 3 Canadians (34%) believe that Canada is a racist country.

The study was done in the wake of the London, ON attack on a Muslim family last year and the uncovering of hundreds of children’s bodies in an unmarked grave outside a former residential school in Kamloops, B.C.

Of the respondents, those most likely to agree that Canada is a racist country were visible minorities, at 42%. 36% of Indigenous and 32% of Caucasian Canadians also felt the same.
