TORONTO, Dec. 5, 2019 – As high-profile incidents of past and present racist behavior among well-known Canadians continue to make news, on December 10, 2019, The Environics Institute for Survey Research in partnership with the Canadian Race Relations Foundation will release the results of a groundbreaking new study on race relations in Canada.

This survey – the first of its kind in Canada – is national in scope and includes significant representation of each of the country’s largest racial groups (Chinese, Black, South Asian, and Indigenous Peoples) to reflect the perspectives and experiences of racialized and non-racialized Canadians.
