UNEMPLOYMENT AND MINORITY IMMIGRANTS IN CANADA

UNEMPLOYMENT AND MINORITY IMMIGRANTS IN CANADA This paper explores the labourmarket status and experience of racial minorities in Canada, and examines and criticises labourmarket policy which ignores the employment and socioeconomic disadvantage of this group. The main argument of this discussion is that racial minorities as a whole encounter racial discrimination in the Canadian labour market, and new racial minority immigrants face compounded obstacles. This is due to the lack of adequate policy initiatives to combat the racism they experience in the attempt to find suitable employment, and to labourmarket policies which exclude services to immigrants. Examples of such obstacles are evident in the Canadian Job Strategy to be discussed below. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Sociology and Social Policy Emerald Publishing

Abstract

This paper explores the labourmarket status and experience of racial minorities in Canada, and examines and criticises labourmarket policy which ignores the employment and socioeconomic disadvantage of this group. The main argument of this discussion is that racial minorities as a whole encounter racial discrimination in the Canadian labour market, and new racial minority immigrants face compounded obstacles. This is due to the lack of adequate policy initiatives to combat the racism they experience in the attempt to find suitable employment, and to labourmarket policies which exclude services to immigrants. Examples of such obstacles are evident in the Canadian Job Strategy to be discussed below.
