Race matters when it comes to health, and other social indicators of well-being and life chances. But Canada does not collect race-based data in health or other areas. Colour of Poverty – Colour of Change (COP-COC) is hosting a public discussion to consider why we should collect race-based health data in Canada, who should collect it and what are the challenges. Our panelists will tell you what is happening right now in Canada in the data collection environment, who can benefit from race-based data collection, and reflect on the role people, community groups, health institutions and governments should play. You will have an opportunity to connect directly with people who know data, understand the issues and ask questions of your own.
