Ethnically diverse populations are growing in many advanced economies (OECD 2013, Statistical Annex). In the US, minority ethnic communities have also gained in perceived importance, such that they are now commonly referred to as the new majority (Armstrong 2013; Dougherty and Jordan 2012) or the majority minority (Cui and Choudhury 2002). In Canada, where day-to-day living experiences are taken as evidence of the cultural diversity that underpins its population, ethnic communities are recognized as the ‘the visible majority’ (Daniels 2012).
