Housing and ethnicity : literature review and select, annotated bibliography
Beavis, Mary Ann
The study of housing and ethnicity is part of the urban literature on residential segregation and racial discrimination in Canada. It also belongs to the larger body of research on the Canadian ethnic mosaic. The results of such research can have important implications for policy-makers in their efforts to pursue effective mortgage and housing markets, to help households in need, and to deal with some of the challenges posed by significant contribution to housing demand anticipated in the next decade.3 Housing for minority groups within Canadian society is also a human rights issue, in that newcomers to Canada, as well as visible minorities, may experience impaired access to housing due to discrimination and lack of appropriate services (see, e.g., Manitoba Association for Rights and Liberties, 1988; Commission des droits de Ia personne du Québec, 1988).
