More Canadians see racism as a serious problem today than one year ago, according to a new Ipsos poll conducted exclusively for Global News.

One year ago, less than half (47 per cent) of Canadians polled viewed racism as a serious issue in the country. But that number shot up 13 points in one year.

The poll, conducted between July 8 and 10, found a majority — sixty per cent — of respondents believed racism is a serious problem in the country.

“People are learning to identify what racism is, they are finding a way to label it. Canadians aren’t becoming more racist, but people are starting to identify things for what they are,” said Darrell Bricker, CEO of Ipsos Public Affairs.
