Institutional racism in Canadian context: Chinese Canadian
I'm sorry, this is a Chinese restaurant. White women are banned from working at Chinese restaurants from when they passed 13 anti-Chinese acts in 1903.
I know. It's because of the fear of miscegenation.
13. Residential Schools were first opened in 1870 and the last one closed in 1996. There were 130 schools present across Canada. About 150,000 Indigenous people were taken away from their families and communities by the government to attend these schools. The purpose of residential schools was to "kill the Indian in the children". The students were severely abused in these schools, sometimes even killed, that "Residential School Syndrome" is a known mental illness
14. The indigenous people in Canada are at higher risk of illnesses, suffer from more chronic diseases, therefore die at a younger age. Children experiment with smoking, drinking, and abuse drug, and the people have higher rates of alcohol and drug use. They have less hourly wages and even a higher level of unemployment so the suicide rates are higher.
15. In the 1880's, 17,000 immigrants from China migrated to Canada to work, however the the organized labour was anti-chinese. The BC Provincial Government prohibited them from public service employment. In 1907, the Chinese, even those born in Canada were denied education due to English deficiency. Head tax were to be payed which increased as the years passed. In 1923, the Chinese Immigration Act was placed which banned all Chinese immigration. In 1947, this act was finally lifted.
