Researchers have discussed the mission within Iberian overseas expansions or compared it with other missions around the world. Perhaps what should be encouraged is an international collaboration, which goes beyond just the publication of an anthology with separate studies. Since effective cross-cultural studies are contingent upon multilingual reading skills, the challenges of working with primary and secondary texts written in diverse languages merits our attention. In contrast, relatively few texts have been translated into English, though recently some publications have been added to the short list.

Bilingualism was reported by Many people with dark skin in Canada have roots in the Caribbean rather than being descendants of the African slaves from the United States. They see themselves ethnically as Caribbean Canadians. The commonality of black Canadians is more a function of racism rather than origin. It is reported that at least 6 of the 16 legislators in English Upper Canada also owned slaves Mosher, The economic conditions in Canada were not conducive to slavery so the practice was not widespread.
Nevertheless, it was not until that slavery was banned throughout the British Empire, including Canada. Canada became the terminus of the famous Underground Railroad, a secret network organized by American abolitionists to transport escaped slaves to freedom. Between the American Revolution in and the end of the American Civil War in , Canada received approximately 60, runaway slaves and black Empire Loyalists from the United States. Many black Canadians returned to the United States after the Civil War, and by there were only about 17, left in Canada Mosher, After the change in immigration policy in the late s, blacks from the Caribbean and elsewhere began to immigrate to Canada in increasing numbers.
In the census, they made up 2. Many Caribbean people come to Canada as part of the Canadian Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program or as domestic workers with temporary work permits, although the permanent Caribbean community in Canada has more or less the same higher education attainments and full-time employment rates as the rest of the population.
More recently, there has been an increase in immigration of Somalis from Africa as people fled conflict in the area. Between and , more than 55, Somali refugees arrived in Canada, representing the largest black immigrant group ever to come to Canada in such a short time Abdulle, Although slavery became in illegal in Canada in , blacks did not effectively enjoy equal rights in Canada. Blacks could vote and sit on juries, but these rights were frequently challenged by white citizens.
As noted earlier in this chapter, Ontario outside of Toronto and Nova Scotia enacted laws to segregate schools along racial lines that remained in effect until in Ontario and in Nova Scotia Black History Canada, Blacks were also segregated into residential neighbourhoods in Toronto, Hamilton, and Windsor Mosher In Halifax, the community of Africville was set aside for blacks as early as , although most accounts place its establishment to the arrival of black Loyalists after the War of It was considered a slum by city councillors and was bulldozed between and without meaningful consultation with its residents.
Blacks were also restricted by the type of occupations they could pursue. For example, the father of Oscar Peterson, the famous jazz pianist, was a Canadian Pacific railroad porter in Montreal, while his mother was employed as a domestic worker Library and Archives Canada, The story of a large group of black immigrants who arrived in Victoria, British Columbia, from San Francisco in the s, illustrates some of the ambiguities of the early black experience in Canada.
The blacks were initially welcomed to the British colony by Governor Douglas, who assured them they would have full civic rights. Douglas and others were worried that the immigration of white Americans to Vancouver Island might lead to annexation by the United States and the arrival of several hundred black immigrants would help to prevent that eventuality.
There was also need for an industrious and reliable workforce and by the black immigrants were fully employed. He won a seat on city council in the wealthiest ward of the city, James Bay, and acted as temporary mayor for a time. On the other hand, tensions and discrimination began to develop between the black and white communities. Schools were integrated and only one church was segregated. However a dispute over black voting led to a racist campaign by future premier Amor de Cosmos.
Blacks began to be denied access to some saloons and desired seating in theatres. As influential as Gibbs was, he was denied tickets to the retirement banquet of Governor Douglas, who had originally been a great supporter of the black immigrants. By the time Gibbs returned to the United States in , the end of slavery after the U. Civil War had already led to many of the black community leaving Victoria. Although formalized discrimination against black Canadians has been outlawed, in many respects true equality does not yet exist.
The census shows that black Canadians earned In addition blacks are subject to greater degrees of racial profiling than other groups. Racial profiling refers to the practice of selecting specific racial groups for greater levels of criminal justice surveillance. Like many groups this section discusses, Asian Canadians represent a great diversity of cultures and backgrounds.
The national and ethnic diversity of Asian Canadian immigration history is reflected in the variety of their experiences in joining Canadian society. Asian immigrants have come to Canada in waves, at different times, and for different reasons. The experience of a Japanese Canadian whose family has been in Canada for five generations will be drastically different from a Laotian Canadian who has only been in Canada for a few years.
This section primarily discusses the experience of Chinese, Japanese, and South Asian immigrants. The first Asian immigrants to come to Canada in the midth century were Chinese. These immigrants were primarily men whose intention was to work for several years in order to earn incomes to support their families in China. Their first destination was the Fraser Canyon for the gold rush in Many of these Chinese came north from California.
The second major wave of Chinese immigration arrived for the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway when contractors recruited thousands of workers from Taiwan and Guandong Province in China. Chinese labourers were paid approximately a third of what white, black, and Aboriginal workers were paid. Even so, they were used to complete the most difficult sections of track through the rugged Fraser Valley Canyon, living under squalid and dangerous conditions; Chinese workers died during the construction of the rail line.
Chinese men also engaged in other manual labour like mining, laundry, cooking, canning, and agricultural work. The work was gruelling and underpaid, but like many immigrants they persevered Chan, Japanese immigration began in with the arrival of the first Japanese settler, Manzo Nagano. They came from fishing and farming backgrounds in the southern Japanese islands of Kyushu and Honshu.
They settled in Japantowns in Victoria and Vancouver, as well as in the Fraser Valley and small towns along the Pacific coast where they worked mostly in fishing, farming, and logging. Like the Chinese settlers, they were paid much less than workers from European backgrounds and were usually hired for menial labour or heavy agricultural work. South Asians refer to a diverse group of people with different ethnic backgrounds in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.
The first group of Sikhs arrived in Vancouver in from Hong Kong, attracted by stories of high wages from British Indian troops who had travelled through Canada the previous year Buchignani, They were encouraged by Hong Kong—based agents of the Canadian Pacific Railway who had seen travel on their passenger liners plummet with the head tax imposed on Chinese immigration.
They were originally from rural areas of Punjab and mortgaged their properties for passage with the prospect of sending money home. Many arrived in Canada unable to speak English but eventually found employment in mills, factories, the railway, and Okanagan orchards Johnston, Many of them settled in Abbotsford Buchignani, The right to vote federally and provincially was denied to Chinese Canadians in , Japanese Canadians in , and South Asians in This disenfranchisement also prevented these groups from having access to political office, jury duty, the professions like law, civil service jobs, underground mining jobs, and labour on public works because these all required being on provincial voters lists.
Voting rights were only returned to Chinese and South Asian Canadians in and to Japanese Canadians in , whereas immigration restrictions were not removed until the s. As the Chinese workers were typically paid much lower wages than workers of European origin, various Asian exclusion leagues developed to press for further restrictions on Asian immigration.
This led to riots in Vancouver in and eventually in to a complete ban on Chinese immigration. For similar reasons, the immigration of Japanese men was restricted to a year after , and further reduced to individuals a year after Their success in the fishing industry led the federal fisheries department to arbitrarily reduce Japanese trolling licences by one-third in An even uglier action was the establishment of Japanese internment camps of World War II, discussed earlier as an illustration of expulsion.
Of the three groups, South Asians were the most recent to arrive. However, by the large number of arrivals led to the imposition of immigration restrictions. As the South Asians were British subjects, the restrictions took a more devious form, however. The famous incident of the freighter Komagata Maru in was a direct consequence of this restriction. The ship, carrying South Asian immigrants, many of whom had boarded in Hong Kong, was prevented from docking and kept in isolation in Vancouver harbour for two months until forced to return to Asia.
Only 20 of the passengers were allowed to stay in Canada Johnston, Asian Canadians certainly have been subject to their share of racial prejudice, despite their seemingly positive stereotype today as the model minority. The model minority stereotype is applied to a minority group that is seen as reaching significant educational, professional, and socioeconomic levels without challenging the existing establishment.
This stereotype is typically applied to Asian groups in Canada, and it can result in unrealistic expectations, putting a stigma on members of this group that do not meet the expectations. Stereotyping all Asians as smart, industrious, and capable can also lead to a lack of much-needed government assistance and to educational and professional discrimination.

Ethnicity is a term that describes shared culture and national origin. Minority groups are defined by their lack of power. Stereotypes, Prejudice, and Discrimination Stereotypes are oversimplified ideas about groups of people. Prejudice refers to thoughts and feelings, while discrimination refers to actions. Racism refers to the belief that one race is inherently superior or inferior to other races. Theories of Race and Ethnicity Functionalist views of race study the role dominant and subordinate groups play to create a stable social structure. Critical sociologists examine power disparities and struggles between various racial and ethnic groups.
Interactionists see race and ethnicity as important sources of individual identity and social symbolism. The concept of culture of prejudice recognizes that all people are subject to stereotypes that are ingrained in their culture. Intergroup Relations and the Management of Diversity Intergroup relations range from a tolerant approach of pluralism to intolerance as severe as genocide. In pluralism, groups retain their own identity.
In assimilation, groups conform to the identity of the dominant group. In assimilation, groups combine to form a new group identity. Race and Ethnicity in Canada The history of the Canadian people contains an infinite variety of experiences that sociologists understand follow patterns. From the Aboriginal people who first inhabited these lands to the waves of immigrants over the past years, migration is an experience with many shared characteristics.
Most groups have experienced various degrees of prejudice and discrimination as they have gone through the process of assimilation. Racial, Ethnic, and Minority Groups 1.
