Ethno-Cultural Groups and Visible Minorities in Canadian Politics

Overview

This book is one of 23 volumes of research commissioned by the Royal Commission on Electoral Reform and Party Financing. Although Canada’s ethno-cultural groups and visible minorities constitute an increasing proportion of the population, they believe they are underrepresented in the political process. The studies in this volume examine the nature and extent of their participation in Canadian politics, in both political parties and the House of Commons. While these groups feel marginalized, they believe strongly in the objectives of democracy and want to participate in a Canada that realizes those ideals more successfully.
