Perceptions of and experiences with police and the justice system among the Black and Indigenous populations in Canada

This report was funded by Canadian Heritage, as part of the federal government’s Anti-Racism Strategy. In addition, it represents part of Statistics Canada’s ongoing commitment to publishing data that is disaggregated to the fullest extent possible.

Analysis is broadly separated into three sections, with the first section focusing on the experiences of the Black population in Canada. The second section examines the experiences of Indigenous people, taking a distinction-based approach to examine the experiences of First Nations people, Métis, and Inuit in Canada where possible. The third section contains a higher-level look at some selected findings for population groups designated as visible minority.
