This three-year, SSHRC-funded study responds to an urgent need to understand the implications of the increasing arrival, settlement and integration of racialized French-speaking immigrants and refugees for community cohesion in Canadian Francophone minority communities. Our ethnically diverse and bilingual research team (Drs. Suzanne Huot, Luisa Veronis, Leyla Sall, Nathalie Piquemal and Faiçal Zellama)will advance understandings of the relationship between French speakers’ intersectional identities and engagement in “collective occupations” (e.g., group activities) within 4 cities across Canada: Vancouver, Winnipeg, Ottawa, and Moncton.
