Black Canadians in Electoral Politics

Black Canadians in Electoral Politics examines the experiences of Black Canadian candidates and legislators in elected office in Canada. Through a survey, interviews, and archival work, the project will produce the most comprehensive account of Black Canadians’ participation and inclusion in Canadian politics. This work will inform the development of resources to support Black Canadian office-seekers and the achievement of more diverse elected institutions in Canada.

In 2023, we will launch a survey of Black Canadians who have run for or served in elected office in Canada. If you are a current or former Black Canadian candidate or officeholder and would like to share your experiences, please get in touch.
