 “Young Black Canadians (aged 15 to 24) have been particularly hard hit, with a jobless rate of 30.6% — almost double the 15.6% rate for non-minority youth.”, the report also acknowledged that “25 to 54 age group, Black Canadians also had a higher unemployment rate than non-minority Canadians (9.4% versus 6.1%)”, read more about the report here.
