|Abstract:||This thesis explored the perception of race relations among African‐Canadians in the city of Greater Sudbury. It assessed African‐Canadians’ perception of the treatments and equal opportunities afforded to them in the city. The purpose of this research was to examine the effect of race on the life experiences of African‐Canadians and the unique meanings they ascribe to these encounters. Using snowball sampling, data for this study were collected from the personal stories of 20 African‐Canadians in the city of Greater Sudbury. This thesis employed a phenomenological qualitative inquiry to focus on participants’ life experiences in the city. Critical race theory was employed as the theoretical framework guiding the analysis of this study. Five major themes emerged during data analysis (1) Social Interaction, (2) Employment, (3) Black in Sudbury, (4) Settlement challenges, and (5) Coping Strategies. This thesis captures a picture of the daily struggles that participants experience in the Sudbury society due to discrimination.|
