Discrimination against Chinese immigrants has increased over the past few years

According to the 2019 General Social Survey on Canadians' Safety, nearly 30% of Chinese individuals aged 15 and over experienced discrimination or unfair treatment in their daily lives during the five years leading up to the survey.

This is almost twice the rate of discrimination experienced by the non-racialized population.

In 2019, the proportion of Chinese individuals who experienced discrimination was almost double the rate found in the 2014 survey.

The most common places where discrimination occurred were stores, banks, and restaurants, followed by the workplace, schools, border crossings, and dealing with police or courts.

Discrimination was frequently based on race or skin colour, ethnicity or culture, and language.

Although most Chinese individuals had confidence in the police, it was slightly lower than the non-racialized population.

Compared to other racialized and non-racialized people, Chinese individuals were less likely to have contact with the police or the criminal court system.
