The COVID-19 crisis has exposed how inequality influences the effects and the ability of many communities to be able to withstand this pandemic.

它还揭示了种族化社区受到的不成比例的影响. 例如, 在美国的许多大城市在美国,黑人感染和死于covid - 19的比例远远高于其他群体. 这也被记录在 像美国这样的国家.K., which has seen death rates in Black and other ethnic communities rise dramatically compared to white British citizens.

我们也看到了某些重要行业, 像肉类加工,它们依赖于外来劳工和 低收入的有色人种工人,成为广泛感染的病毒爆发热点. 土著 社区也面临风险, often due to remote locations with little access to health care services and existing health issues.

这就是国际赌城下注官网呼叫联邦的原因, 各省和市政府指导相关公共卫生机构(e.g. 加拿大卫生部、各省卫生部、地方公共卫生单位等.),以及其他数据收集机构和部门(e.g. 加拿大统计局)收集关于COVID-19检测、感染和死亡率的种族数据. This should be standardized as much as possible to allow for greater cross-jurisdictional comparisons.

工具和数据必须由土著群体和社区本身拥有和控制, 收集到的任何数据都必须用于促进立即采取行动.

这些数据将用于制定公平的政策, 公平的健康策略, culturally appropriate resources for impacted communities and for addressing the racism and discrimination that exists in society.

我们要求当地联合工会, 领导人, 和成员通过写信给你的市政当局或总理来支持这一行动呼吁. 请他们成为盟友, 为了支持这一需求, 并向他们表明,这一要求对他们所在地区的工人至关重要.

常见问题

为什么要收集基于种族的数据?

The COVID-19 crisis has exposed how economic inequality has affected the ability of many communities to be able to be able to withstand the impacts of a national and international crisis.

它还揭示了种族化社区受到的不成比例的影响. 例如, 在美国的许多大城市在美国,黑人感染和死于covid - 19的比例远远高于其他群体. 这也被记录在 像美国这样的国家.K., which has seen death rates in Black and other ethnic communities rise dramatically compared to white British citizens. 我们也看到了某些重要行业, 像肉类加工,它们依赖于外来劳工和 低收入的有色人种工人,成为广泛感染的病毒爆发热点. 土著 社区也面临风险, often due to remote locations with little access to health care services and existing health issues.

系统性种族主义的影响不足为奇, discrimination and legacy of colonialism has created the conditions for racialized and 土著 groups to become at higher risk of public health outbreaks. 劳动力市场结果不佳(e.g. 低工资的服务部门工作和不稳定的工作)导致更大的贫困风险, 缺乏负担得起的优质住房, food insecurity and less access to health care services – all factors that contribute to poor health and risk of illness and disease. 对于许多土著社区来说, 长期的贫困,加上缺乏干净的饮用水, 住房不足, lack of accessible and appropriate 土著-centered health services and proximity to environmental contaminants, 也严重损害个人和社区健康.

在加拿大的司法管辖区, we do not know (aside for anecdotally) which groups are more likely to be contracting and dying from this virus because governments (at all levels) and health agencies are not collecting basic and critical race-based data. This lack of information is putting our communities at greater risk by accelerating the spread to those with the fewest means to protect themselves.

数据收集如何帮助种族化社区?

Collecting and providing disaggregating race-based data help us to gain a deeper understanding of the public health impacts facing specific racialized groups based on common cultural (and other) characteristics, 例如:黑色, 南亚, 东亚, 拉丁美洲的, 等.

对原住民, 将收集数据,以了解各土著群体面临的差异, 比如第一民族, 因纽特人,混血儿. 它承认并承认这些不是同一群体, 但是非常独特, ,因此, 有不同的需求. 

这些数据还有助于揭示种族化群体和土著人民面临的系统性障碍, 包括制度上的种族歧视, racial bias and discrimination that impedes equitable access to public programs and services and other critical areas such as housing, 劳动力市场, 和教育.

Access to race-based disaggregated data is critical in order to create and develop proper evidence-based policy decisions and interventions at the government level while ensuring that public resources are allocated in most the strategic and effective way possible. 进一步, it can contribute to identifying gaps and barriers to existing programs while also leading to the development of more culturally sensitive services – all in an effort to increase accessibility amongst vulnerable groups.

最后, we must ensure that protective measures are put into place to ensure confidentiality in the collection of this data. It is imperative that this information is not used by law or immigration enforcement or other government authorities to further police or surveille racialized and 土著 people. This data is a tool to help us collectively build a better society – not to further oppress communities.

国际赌城下注官网要收集什么类型的数据?

国际赌城下注官网 is supporting the growing calls for the collection of race-based disaggregated data as it relates to COVID-19 testing, 诊断, 治疗和死亡. 在理想的情况下, 此外,还收集了有关人们种族/民族的数据, 我们希望确保获得其他关键人口信息, 包括性别, 语言, 收入, 性取向, 残疾, 出生地点和移民身份.

这些都是为了承认影响一个人健康的其他交叉因素, 获得保健服务和总体生活水平. We also call for these data collection tools to become permanent so that we can better track and understand health inequalities and outcomes for various populations. 

加拿大基于种族的数据收集现状如何?

目前,有 没有全国范围内标准化或统一的种族数据收集 由于它与健康有关,也没有立法或指示收集这类信息. 相反,如果政府、机构或个人组织决定征收,则是自愿的. 这个差距 被提倡者养大 多年来.

Even Statistics Canada continues to use outdated “visible minority” variables that leave out many groups. 缺乏质量、一致性和分块性 土著人民的健康数据 in Canada has also been raised as largely inadequate and contributing to a limited understanding of 土著 health outcomes.  

其他国家并非如此. 在美国.S.例如, 疾病控制中心(CDC) mandates that states by law must collect and release race-based data on testing and treatment during an outbreak (yet compliance, 数据一致性和发布及时性一直是问题). 在美国.K.,立法指导 国家卫生服务 收集种族数据以监测健康结果, 确保种族平等,确保医疗体系不存在歧视.   

The sharp rise and concentration of cases (infections and fatalities) amongst people of colour in several countries has cause 倡导者重新提出要求 ,以便在加拿大收集适当的资料. 政府继续缺乏行动, 然而, 会导致一些机构加紧填补这一关键空白吗. 例如, 多伦多公共卫生 (包括其他一些 安大略市) recently announced intentions to start collecting race and other sociodemographic data for those infected with COVID19.

为什么国际赌城下注官网会参与?

作为一个劳工和社会正义组织, highlighting social and economic inequities and advocating for evidence-based policy solutions is our primary goal and an extension of our ongoing equity and anti-racism advocacy work. This campaign is also important as it directly affects our members currently working in essential services.

It is critical that we know which groups are at greater risk of contracting the virus at the workplace, since we know racialized and 土著 workers are over represented in certain key low-waged sector, 如零售, 个人支持工作, 清洁, 食品服务, 等. 这些数据也可以作为与雇主讨价还价的重要工具, as bargaining 语言 around health and safety or other demands can be better developed when we know some of the key issues and risks facing our equity-seeking members in the workplace.
