Who is considered a person of African descent?

The term ‘People of African descent’ refers to all Black people who can trace their family tree back to the continent of Africa. It does not matter if you are descendent from victims of the transatlantic slave trade (example people from the Caribbean, Latin America, South America, African American, African Canadian) or if you are a more recent migrant from the continent of Africa (example: Somalia, Nigeria, Ghana etc.).

The term “African Canadian” refers to all Canadians of African descent, regardless of where they were born, e.g. Canada, Jamaica, Nigeria, England, etc.
