Immigration is the primary reason for the rise in Canada’s racialized population

According to a recent report by Statistics Canada, the number of racialized people in Canada increased by 130% from 2001 to 2021 due to immigration.

The study analyzed data from population censuses and found that the number of racialized people increased much faster than the white population, which only grew by one percent.

This has led to a more diverse Canadian population, with one in four people in Canada being from a racialized population in 2021.

Before 1981, racialized people accounted for less than five percent of the population due to immigration policies. However, policy changes led to a shift in Canada's demographic composition.

The study also found that smaller groups within the racialized population have increased their population share in recent years.
