 Black Canadian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Today's black Canadians are largely of Caribbean origin, some of African origin (especially, but not exclusively, from Somalia) and smaller numbers from Latin American countries, but a sizable number of black Canadians descended from freed American slaves can still be found in the province of Nova Scotia and parts of Southwestern Ontario.
According to the 2001 census, 662,215 Canadians identified themselves as black (of which 70 000 are mixed with other races), approximately two per cent of the entire Canadian population (Statistics Canada).
Some Black Canadians, like those in Nova Scotia, trace their ancestry to freed black American slaves who fled to Canada seeking refuge from American slavery and institutional racism.
