Canada's Economic Apartheid
The Social Exclusion of Racialized Groups in the New Century
By (author) Grace-Edward Galabuzi
Canada's Economic Apartheid by Grace-Edward Galabuzi
Book DescriptionCanada's Economic Apartheid calls attention to the growing racialization of the gap between rich and poor, which, despite the dire implications for Canadian society, is proceeding with minimal public and policy attention. This book challenges some common myths about the economic performance of Canada's racialized communities. These myths are used to deflect public concern and to mask the growing social crisis. Dr. Galabuzi points to the role of historical patterns of systemic racial discrimination as essential in understanding the persistent over-representation of racialized groups in low paying occupations. While Canada embraces globalization and romanticizes cultural diversity, there are persistent expressions of xenophobia and racial marginalization that suggest a continuing political and cultural attachment to the concept of a white, settled society. Canada's racialized groups are set to become one-fifth of the national population in the early 21st century, yet they continue to confront racial discrimination. Despite comparable average educational attainment, the labour market experience of these marginalized groups is one of barriers to access, limited mobility, and discrimination in the workplace. The social crisis to come is documented in Galabuzi's challenging book.
