EDS (Ethnic Diversity Survey)


There are two primary objectives of the survey. First of all, the survey will help us to better understand how people's backgrounds affect their participation in the social, economic and cultural life of Canada. Secondly, the survey will provide information to better understand how Canadians of different ethnic backgrounds interpret and report their ethnicity.
