Racial Inequality, Social Cohesion and Policy Issues in Canada

Since the 1960s, when discriminatory selection policies were eliminated, questions about immigration’s impact on the cohesiveness of Canadian society have become more prominent. Although few predict a breakdown in social cohesion as a result of racial diversity, concerns about racial tensions have been expressed from a variety of political standpoints by a number of commentators, including advocates for minority rights (Lewis 1992; Omidvar and Richmond 2003) and advocates of reductions in immigration (Economic Council of Canada 1991; Stoffman 2002; Collacott 2002; Francis 2002).
