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.

Book Description:

Lauded as a “potential classic,” Electing a Diverse Canada presents the most extensive analysis to date of the electoral representation of immigrants, minorities, and women in Canada.

From the Back Cover:

Electing a Diverse Canada is a “must read” and a potential classic in its field. Demographic profiles of individual cities and their elected representatives are compiled and analyzed by scholars with intimate knowledge of local politics. A unifying focus and methodology (including a common survey) provide powerful tools for understanding the general patterns of minority representation in Canada and its unique features in our major urban centres.

– Linda Gerber, co-author of Sociology (6th edition)
