Another Fine Balance: Managing Diversity in Canadian Cities

Research Report by Katherine Graham, Susan Phillips

Katherine Graham and Susan Phillips analyze how Canadian urban governments are responding to both the changing patterns and the evolving understandings of diversity. Graham and Phillips focus on four major Canadian cities (Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, and Winnipeg), establishing each city’s patterns of diversity. The authors also find that although the cities vary in their methods of dealing with these issues, all have put diversity issues on the policy agenda because “greater residential segregation in selected suburbs … as well as those of the urban core and increased the need for more coordinated policy responses.”
