    I'm applying for employment benefits since I'm a poor student.

    Can someone please tell me if I should check the box that says "I'm a visible minority"?

    Human Resources and Social Development Canada has a number of programs and services designed to assist workers who have particular employment needs. The information sought below is for determining your eligibility for these programs and services and also for statistical purposes.

    This information will also be used to determine how much income tax, if any, will be deducted from your benefits.

    Completion of this section is mandatory.
    I am ________
    Status Indian
    (Status Indian is someone who is registered with Indian and Northern Affairs Canada as an Indian, or who is entitled to be so registered, according to the terms of the Indian Act)
    Non-status Indian
    Inuit
    Métis
    Person with a disability
    Visible minority
    EDIT:
    ZOMG. It brings up the biggest debate in history. WHAT CONSTITUTES "WHITE"?
    Visible minorities are defined by the Canadian Employment Equity Act as "persons, other than Aboriginals, who are non-Caucasian in race or non-white in colour."
    Am I non-white bbz?

    I'd say you should check the white box. Even though you're not white, having minority status affecting income taxes and not actual income is quite strange. I'd not say you're really a minority who has it extremely hard.

    Or just go for it.

    There's no aboriginal box in America... Is that a generic term, or does it always specifically refer to Australia?

    adjective
    (of human races, animals, and plants) inhabiting or existing in a land from the earliest times or from before the arrival of colonists; indigenous. See note at native .

    It often does refer to Australians, but Native Americans are Aboriginals too.

    I can really never tell if you're sarcastic or not.

    The xD is a hint.

    Political correctness is annoying, especially when all the "Native Americans" I know don't even care. Mostly just casino jokes.

    What exactly constitutes "white"?
    About significant fraction of Iranians, Afghanis and Syrians, etc have very light skin and eye color ranging from light green to hazel. Are they white? xD
