Canadian Public Broadcaster Claims Quebec Public Sector Employees ‘Too White’

in Canada by

According to an investigation by the French language version of the publicly-funded Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), the public sector workforce of the province of Quebec is “too white”.

The investigation claims that white Canadians are overrepresented in the public sector workforce in comparison to their overall population in Quebec.

White Quebecois are increasingly becoming a smaller segment of the overall population of the province, with visible minorities almost doubling from  7 per cent to 13 per cent of the population between 2001 and 2016.

The author of the report, Thomas Gerbet, lists several publicly-owned companies and lists the number of minority employees, such as Quebec’s public liquor corporation Société des alcools du Québec, which has minorities as only two per cent of its overall workforce.
