ANTI-ASIAN RACISM IS ON THE RISE.
THE TIME FOR CHANGE IS NOW!
In Canada, we consider ourselves welcoming to all — a truly inclusive and multicultural society. Unfortunately, the experiences of Asian Canadians tell a different story. Throughout childhood, many experience bullying due to their ethnicity. This ill-treatment continues into adulthood through bias and discrimination. For example, people with Asian names are 45-60% less likely to be selected for an interview.1
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, anti-Asian racism has been on the rise. Asian-owned businesses in the GTA saw an 80% decrease in business due to discrimination and misinformation.2 Three months into the pandemic, 24% of East Asian Canadians living in Vancouver had been the target of racial slurs or insults.3 Even more concerning, there has been a significant rise in hate crimes against Asian Canadians — with some major cities reporting an increase of up to 700%.4
CELEBRATING ASIAN CONTRIBUTIONS
Fighting against Asian hate calls for all of us to stand up against intolerance and discrimination. Leading the fight are amazing organizations, offering resources that uplift Asian Canadians and celebrate their many contributions to Canada. This includes social services, preservation of arts and culture, anti-racism initiatives, education programs, and much more.
