Electing A Diverse Canada
The Representation of Immigrants, Minorities, and WomenBook - 2008
Electing a Diverse Canada presents the most extensive analysis to date of the electoral representation of immigrants, minorities, and women in Canada. Covering eleven cities as well as Canada’s Parliament, it breaks new ground by assessing the representation of diverse identity groups across multiple levels of government. Electoral representation is an important indicator of a democracy’s health, and this book not only provides a baseline for future research but also outlines the key challenges facing Canadian democracy.
