This paper outlined a plan for a qualitative case study to explore reasons for the barriers and glass ceiling that are experienced by Canada's visible minorities with professional qualifications. The research consisted of interviews with visible minority professionals, visible minority corporate executives, and non-visible minority corporate executives of Canadian organizations in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) of Ontario, Canada, with a focus on the discrimination that visible minorities face in the Canadian corporate world. The implications of this study are that companies may benefit from its findings to devise strategic plans to improve their retention of valuable human capital in the form of talented visible minorities. The knowledge gained from this study may offer a better understanding of why organizations continue to maintain barriers to visible minorities, which may cause organizations to lose productivity, and how barriers that exclude visible minorities from the Canadian corporate environment lose valuable human capital.
