|Toronto a divided city; second-generation immigrants feel left out|
Since 2001, the Toronto Community Foundation (TCF) has been reporting on Toronto's vital signs, an annual check-up that spots trends, celebrates progress and issues alerts and challenges to improve how Toronto works for its citizens.
Trends are often difficult to spot when viewed in 12-month increments. And scientific data often trails reality experienced on the street.
Such is the case with one of the talking points accompanying the 2012 edition of Vital Signs, recently released.
Rahul Bhardwaj, CEO and president of the TCF, is more than a little anxious about moving Toronto towards an embrace, not simply an accommodation, of newcomers.
After years of focusing on labour-market integration, removing discriminatory
practices and creating a climate of openness to diversity, progress has been slow where it counts most: on the economic prospects for immigrant
Eight out of 10 immigrants arriving in Toronto are members of a racialized
group. In less than 20 years, racialized minorities will account for 63 per cent of the Toronto region's population, up from 47 per cent in 2006.
By then, there will be 2.1 million South Asian Canadians
and 1.1 million Chinese Canadians in a regional population of 5.6 million.
prospects matter to them, and to the city.Click HERE to read more.
