COVID-19 and Punjabi Migration

    Summary:

    In partnership with Punjabi Community Health Services (PCHS), this project’s goals are to discover the shifting needs, obstacles, concerns and coping strategies around settlement among young newcomer Punjabis (ages 18–35) in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) arising as a result of COVID-19.

    Description:

    The project’s objectives are to:
    1) assess the specific needs and obstacles that GTA-based Punjabi newcomers are encountering in the COVID-19 period and formulate support strategies.
    2) understand how young Punjabi migrants may be adapting their migration plans and strategies to COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 environments in India and Canada.
    3) understand and document alternative mobility pathways for young Punjabis in India who are unable to migrate between the two locations under COVID-19 conditions.
