Members of visible minority groups are defined by the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission (SHRC) as "persons who are, because of their race or colour, in a visible minority in Canada". According to the SHRC:

Visible minority persons are groups of people who, because of the colour of their skin, are discriminated against when they look for work, when they are in the workplace, and when they are seeking promotion.

Visible minority persons are a diverse group. Some groups the SHRC considers as visible minority persons are those whose ancestry are:





West Asian and Arabic

Visible Minority Latin American

Indo-Pakistani or South Asian


Southeast Asian

Others (Indonesian or Pacific Islanders)

The SHRC's comparable statistics are 3.8 per cent in Saskatchewan as a whole. As of March 2011, 4.2 per cent of all Saskatchewan public service workforce had self-identified as being a visible minority.
