There are widely divergent views about racism in Canada. Some believe that racism is a fundamental feature of Canadian society and national identity. This dystopian view of Canada as a fundamentally and irrevocably racist society carries considerable currency in some academic and activist circles. Others argue that racism is oversold as a social problem: while pockets of racism do exist, Canada remains a fundamentally fair place for people of diverse backgrounds to prosper and flourish.

Vic Satzewich's short and accessible book explores how racism operates in Canadian society, past and present. Racism is a complex aspect of Canadian society; while it may not be an inherent and invariant feature of the country, it is also more prevalent than many people may realize.

Racism in Canada examines a variety of issues including racism and the immigration system, racial profiling, racism and First Nations, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism. It concludes with a discussion of some of the dilemmas and challenges associated with anti-racism theory and practice.
