Tapping into our network of new citizens from the Cultural Access Pass (CAP) program, we ask about practical, real-life concerns and generate insights into the experience of belonging in Canada. Our goal is to be the leading source of research on newcomer inclusion: social, cultural, political, and economic.
By the year 2030, Canada’s population growth is projected to be entirely dependent on immigration. The 2030 Project will help guide Canadians on our way to 2030, exploring how we can build the most inclusive society possible.
The project will measure the extent to which new Canadians feel included through a number of economic, political, and social/cultural indicators.
Anticipated release date: March 2017
Ballots & Belonging
Ballots & Belonging – New Citizens on Political Participation is a national study that explores Canadian democracy through the eyes of more than 2,300 of Canada’s newest citizens.
Playing together – new citizens, sports & belonging is a national study that explores how new citizens participate in Canada’s sporting culture and shares how Canada’s sports organizations can more effectively engage new Canadians as participants and fans.
This study was made possible through the generous support of Bouygues Building Canada, and Doug and Lois Mitchell.
Canadians on Citizenship is the country’s first national survey to ask what it means to be a Canadian citizen. This survey dispels many myths surrounding Canadians’ beliefs about citizenship. The results show positive similarities among citizens born abroad, those born in Canada, and permanent residents.
