A new report from Statistics Canada titled Year in Review is showing a large disparity between COVID-19 mortality rates in Canada's most racially diverse neighbourhoods and its neighborhoods with overwhelmingly white populations. From CBC: The most racially diverse neighbourhoods in Canada reported COVID-19 mortality rates more than twice as high as those reported by districts that are overwhelmingly white, according to new data released Wednesday by Statistics Canada. The report, titled Year in Review, lays bare the uneven effects of this pandemic on Canadians of different racial backgrounds. The data affirms what some Canadians have reported anecdotally for months: Black people in particular have been far more likely to succumb to the virus than members of other groups. In areas where a quarter of the population or more identified as "visible minorities" — the term the government uses for non-white and non-Indigenous people — the mortality rate averaged 35 deaths per 100,000 people, compared to an average of 16 deaths per 100,000 people in regions where less than one per cent of the population was composed of racial minorities. The data account for deaths between January 2020 and January 2021. Click here to read the full article.
