Canadian social trends

Spring 2004

Each quarter, Canadian social trends integrates data from many sources to examine emerging social trends and issues. The spring 2004 issue contains five articles.

The feature article, entitled "Blacks in Canada: A long history", examines the historical and current residential settlement patterns of Blacks, and the places of birth of Black immigrants, especially those who arrived during the 1990s; "Visible minority neighbourhoods in Toronto, Montréal, and Vancouver" examines the expansion of visible minority neighbourhoods in Canada's three largest census metropolitan areas using Census data from 1981 to 2001; "Profile of disability in 2001" looks at the prevalence of disability in the Canadian population, the severity of disability, types of disability, the impact of child disabilities on parental employment, the need for specialized aids for help with everyday activities, and for specialized modifications to homes, barriers to travel and the impact of disabilities on economic well-being; "Well-being of the non-reserve Aboriginal population" uses several different health, education, housing and language indicators to contribute to an understanding of the experiences and living conditions of Aboriginal people living outside of reserves; and "The feminization of work" describes trends in the feminization of work, and compares the situation in Canada with those in Australia, France, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States.

This issue of Canadian social trends also features the latest social indicators as well as information about Statistics Canada's products and services.

The spring 2004 issue of Canadian social trends, no. 72 (11-008-XIE, $9/$29; 11-008-XPE, $12/$39) is now available.
