a Visible minority refers to whether a person belongs to a visible minority group as defined by the Employment Equity Act and, if so, the visible minority group to which the person belongs. The Employment Equity Act defines visible minorities as 'persons, other than Aboriginal peoples, who are non-Caucasian in race or non-white in colour.' The visible minority population consists mainly of the following groups: South Asian, Chinese, Black, Filipino, Latin American, Arab, Southeast Asian, West Asian, Korean and Japanese.
b For example, 'East Indian,' 'Pakistani,' 'Sri Lankan', etc.
c For example, 'Vietnamese,' 'Cambodian,' 'Laotian,' 'Thai,' etc.
d For example, 'Afghan,' 'Iranian,' etc.
e The abbreviation 'n.i.e.' means 'not included elsewhere.' Includes persons with a write-in response such as 'Guyanese,' 'West Indian,' 'Tibetan,' 'Polynesian,' 'Pacific Islander,' etc.
f Includes persons who gave more than one visible minority group by checking two or more mark-in responses, e.g., 'Black' and 'South Asian.'
g Includes persons who reported 'Yes' to the Aboriginal group question (Question 18), as well as persons who were not considered to be members of a visible minority group.Source: Compiled by the Community Accounts Unit based on information provided from Statistics Canada, Census of Population, 2016 and National Household Survey, 2011.
