Summary:
We investigate the pattern of earnings disparity across Canadian-born ethnic groups in Canada over three census years--1996, 2001, and 2006. Our analysis extends the findings of Pendakur and Pendakur (2002) by ten years. We find that the earnings gaps faced by Canadian-born visible minorities have not eroded since the 1990s.

Abstract:

We investigate the pattern of earnings disparity across Canadian-born ethnic groups in Canada over three census years--1996, 2001, and 2006. Our analysis extends the findings of Pendakur and Pendakur (2002) by ten years. We find that the earnings gaps faced by Canadian-born visible minorities have not eroded since the 1990s. This is somewhat surprising given that the size of this population has radically increased over the last twenty years. Other patterns observed in the 1990s, such as the relatively poor earnings outcomes of South Asians and Blacks and the relatively poor economic outcomes of visible minorities in Montreal and Toronto, are still evident into the 2000s. An exception to the bleak outlook is that persons of Caribbean origin have seen substantial convergence in their earnings relative to majority workers.
