Capturing the Pulse of the Nation March 2020


The CRRF, in partnership with the Association of Canadian Studies, have since 2017 published a number of reports that aim at “Capturing the Pulse of the Nation” on issues of racism and discrimination. Our current report focusses on the state of race relations in Canada, in particular, the problems of racism and discrimination, and the state of inter-group relations as perceived by members of the Asian community.  This focus is timely as it coincides with the global spread and impact of COVID-19 virus and instances of stigmatization of this community.

The survey results are being released today in recognition of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

The survey was conducted by the firm Leger Marketing, with a sample of 1479 Canadians nationally via web panel during the week of March 9th, 2020. It has a probabilistic margin of error of 2.5 percent 19 times out of 20.
