Definitions of “Ethno-Racial” and “Racialized”
Term Definition
Ethno-Racial Includes persons who are racialized but not First Nations People. Also referred to as “people of colour” or “visible minorities” [4].
Racialized The term racialized person/group refers to what was previously called "ethno-racial or people of colour" and First Nations People. The Ontario Human Rights Commission states: “When it is necessary to describe people collectively, the term “racialized person” or “racialized group” is preferred over "racial minority,” "visible minority", "person of colour" or “non-White” as it expresses race as a social construct rather than as a description based on perceived biological traits[3,4].
