Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) released a report on racism in the department. According to the IRCC 2022-23 Anti-Racism Employee Qualitative Research, 63% of employees rated racism as a problem. Racism is more prevalent in foreign postings than in local offices. Participants reported incidents of managers mocking accents, not understanding, ignoring Locally Engaged Staff, and avoiding removing problematic employees. The study was conducted by Pollara Strategic Insights and surveyed 62 employees through online focus groups and interviews. The participants included indigenous, black, non-black, racialized, and white employees. The report shows the need for strong intervention in the future.
