Why EmployESBC

► The Black struggle in Canada has been, unlike most other immigrants,  one in which the Black community has occupied the bottom rungs of all the various  layers: search for an identity; search for a sense of belonging, equal access, representation, participation, etc.

According to the 2016 Canadian Census the unemployment rate of the English-Speaking Black Community (ESBC) was 13.5% but the total population was 7.2%.

With the same educational attainment, members of the Black community in Quebec are significantly more likely to be unemployed and have a significantly lower median income.

2000 and 2016 employment and education data from Census Canada shows that  whether a Black person was born here or outside of Canada  and came here; whether the person has a degree, a certificate, a diploma, a trade or none of the above ; whether the person is young or old, male or female that he or she  would be more likely  than a White person to have lived out his or her life exposed to low incomes, and unemployment.
