In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, many Canadians, including Black Canadians, have experienced significant economic hardship, while others put themselves at risk through their work in essential industries such as health care and social assistance.
To mark Black History Month, Statistics Canada looked at how 1 million Black Canadians aged 15 to 69 fared in the labour market during one of the most disruptive times in our economic history. Analysis of the recent labour market situation of population groups designated as visible minorities is now possible as a result of a new question added to the Labour Force Survey (LFS) in July 2020. Unless otherwise stated, all data in this release are unadjusted for seasonality and are based on three-month averages ending in January 2021.
