Visible minorities, health-care workers and young people in Quebec have been at higher risk of experiencing COVIDrelated discrimination and more likely to suffer from poor mental health in the past year, according to a collective of researchers from McGill University, Concordia University and the University of Ottawa. We looked at the impact of COVIDrelated discrimination and stigma because of all the incidences of hate crimes, especially against people of Asian descent. The researchers also interviewed community leaders to capture the experience of refugees, low-income residents and other risk factors that may not have been captured in the survey. It found that Racialized participants, health-care workers and younger people were more likely to have reported discrimination than white, unemployed and older participants. As well, while older participants were less likely to report discrimination overall, they were more likely to experience it in grocery stores and because of their age.
