Electing a Diverse Canada presents the most extensive analysis to date of the electoral representation of immigrants, minorities, and women in Canada. Covering eleven cities, as well as Canada's Parliament, it breaks new ground by assessing the representation of diverse identity groups across multiple levels of government. Electoral representation is an important indicator of a democracy's health, and this book provides both a baseline for future research and an outline of the key challenges facing Canadian democracy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Electing a Diverse Canada all fit together seamlessly, and the editors do a tidy job of summing up the key findings of the contributing authors, as well as supplying a theoretical framework for the project in their introductory review of theories of representation. As a result, anybody studying issues of representation will find the collection useful. The volume would also be useful as supplementary reading in most courses related to Canadian elections, women and politics, and municipal politics, as well as acting as a foundational resource for individuals researching issues related to representation, the election of marginalized groups into government, or even those looking for profiles and background information about major Canadian cities. As the editors note, this volume is the first of its kind, and the authors ought to be applauded for their efforts.
