Racialization of poverty is the idea that visible minorities and Indigenous people in Canada experience poverty at greater rates due to structural factors related to race in society. As of 2016 Census Data, visible minorities in Calgary were 33% more likely to be low-income…[and] individuals of Aboriginal identity in Calgary were more than twice as likely to be low-income based. In general, Calgary’s population of low-income individuals has shown a tendency to be increasingly composed of racialized individuals.
