Through a partnership between the African Canadian Civic Engagement Council (ACCEC) and Innovative Research Group (INNOVATIVE), this research study was designed to explore perceptions of Black Canadians and the broader Canadian population regarding systemic racism, the Black Lives Matter movement, policing, and Canada’s court systems.
A majority (53%) of Black Canadians live with discrimination in their daily lives, nearly 3 times the national average. These experiences of discrimination go hand in hand with lower confidence in the police and the courts. If we want to repair the Black Community and the police’s relationship, the research suggests we need to address systemic racism in the Canadian society head-on.
