The Canada Excellence Research Chair in Migration and Integration program at Ryerson University is recruiting participants for our research project titled, "Why Migrants Stay in Small and Mid-Sized Canadian Cities: A Comparative Study of Mobility Decisions and Settlement Experiences across Ontario and British Columbia". The study aims to understand why migrants voluntarily decide to move to, stay and build their lives in small and mid-sized Canadian cities, so that we can enhance our understanding of migrants’ location choices, mobility patterns, and settlement following their arrival in Canada.
We are recruiting 20 participants to complete an online 5-minute survey on SurveyMonkey and of those 20, we will invite 10 people to participate in online 1-hour Zoom interviews. The survey can be accessed here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/whymigrantstay2. Your shared stories and insights will be valuable in informing policies to better respond to the needs of newcomers and local communities in small and mid-sized cities.
Participants completing BOTH the survey AND interview will receive a $15 Tim Hortons gift card.
This research study has been reviewed and approved by the Ryerson University Research Ethics Board [REB 2020-243] and is funded by the Canada Excellence Research Chair, Government of Canada.
