Experiences of Discrimination – Statistics Canada’s Crowd Sourcing Data Collection


The Canadian Race Relations Foundation would like to request and encourage your active participation in a crowd sourcing data collection survey on the experiences of discrimination created by Statistics Canada.

Impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians – Experiences of Discrimination
Discrimination is very prevalent in Canada and it is our mission to find ways to eradicate racism across Canada. To make significant changes, we need up-to-date facts!

Statistics Canada is continuing its series of short crowdsourcing questionnaires to collect information on specific topics related to the impacts of the pandemic. The current questionnaire – Impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians – Experiences of Discrimination – will be available until August 24, 2020. The information collected will provide insights on Canadians who have experienced discrimination, whether their experiences have changed during the COVID-19 pandemic and if discrimination has impacted certain groups more than others.  These insights will help provide Canadians and decision-makers with timely and trusted information to help navigate our path toward a discrimination-free Canada. 

Why should you help?
Your colleagues and followers look to you for leadership so we are asking for your help to encourage participation in this important crowd-sourcing data collection.  By virtue of your position within your organization, and that of your organization itself, we believe that you can help us shed light on discrimination by encouraging Canadians to take five minutes to participate in Statistics Canada’s Experiences of Discrimination.

We would appreciate your help in getting the message out to encourage Canadians to participate. To help you, we have enclosed links to Statistics Canada’s social media content so that you easily click, like and share with your colleagues and followers.

The greater the response, the better the data and insights that can be used by ALL Canadians to inform their decisions and perspectives.
