The Canadian Black Communities Demographic Project is intended to improve access to Census based information as a tool for community building and empowerment. In seeking to facilitate an understanding of the forces that shape community life, the report Diversity Mobility and Change: The Dynamics of Black Communities in Canada (1997) was presented as an initial portrait of the "state of the nation" for Blacks in Canada. An indepth study of the Black Community of Montreal ensued in 2001.
