Anybody, no matter the origins, no matter the background, who is engaged in criminal activities with an organised group of people (no matter who they are). Legally, in Canada, doing crimes with five of your buddies could end up with gangsterism accusations.
Al Capone was a gangster. But anybody that sells drugs, rob stores, commit murder... in an organised group is a gangster too.
