Predicting the impact going forward

PREDICTING THE IMPACT GOING FORWARD

  • About one-third of Canada's population — up to 14.4 million people — will be a visible minority by 2031, Statistics Canada projects.

  • The country's foreign-born population is also expected to rise to as much as 28 per cent, about four times faster than the rest of the population.

  • The projections suggest that whites will become the minority in Toronto and Vancouver over the course of the next three decades.

2017 is the year that it is predicted visible minorities top 50% in Toronto and Vancouver


Predicting the impact going forward1

PREDICTING THE IMPACT GOING FORWARD

  • South Asians, including Indians, Pakistanis and Sri Lankans, are expected to make up the largest visible minority group, at 28 per cent, thanks in part to high fertility rates, the study projected.

  • The vast majority of visible minorities — 71 per cent — are projected to live in Toronto, Vancouver or Montreal

  • The largest proportion by far is projected to live in Toronto, where Statistics Canada says 63 per cent of the population will be a visible minority, up from 43 per cent counted in the 2006 census.

Social challenges the well being of aboriginal people

Social Challenges: The Well-being of Aboriginal People

  • Aboriginal people in Canada are at greater risk both for being victimized by violent and personal crimes, and for being negatively involved in the criminal justice system.

  • Aboriginal people are significantly over-represented as offenders in the Canadian criminal justice system. Incarceration rates of Aboriginal people are five to six times higher than the national average.

  • Aboriginal people account for 18% of those who are incarcerated in federal institutions. In the Prairie provinces, 50% of prisoners are Aboriginals.
