This guide consists of a curated list of datasets that include ethnicity and race variables which can be used to facilitate anti-racism research in Canada. Although not comprehensive, the intention is to provide a starting point for researchers investigating topics about anti-racism and the impact of racism.
This report aims to help policymakers, movement leaders, and thinkers better understand and address the challenges posed by data capitalism and the ways it is fundamentally intertwined with systemic racism.
In order for us to understand and confront the ways in which data-based technologies are being integrated into our everyday lives and impacting our ability to self-determine and thrive, we must first understand how our communities—ones marginalized by race, class, gender, sexuality, immigration status, and other natural and imposed identities—are impacted by data-base technologies.

There are many considerations touching on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility that inform researchers' perspectives, practices, and decisions regarding their data.* Although some fields have extensive research ethics histories that include detailed data practices, many do not. Many researchers end up learning best practices either through trial and error, or from whatever personal and professional networks they happen to have...Our goal with this project is to collate and make visible some of the resources relevant to different stages of work with data throughout a research project; that is, we sought to include resources with practical applications at various decision points in the research process.
