FIlipino Youth Transitions in Canada


Project Summary:

The Filipino Youth Transitions in Canada (FYTiC) project was started in 2010. We initiated the project because research by Statistics Canada showed that Filipino-Canadian youth are not, on average, doing well in education and employment after they leave high school. Our research aims to find out why this is so, and what can be done about it. The study involves collaborative research (both quantitative and qualitative) in Toronto, Hamilton, Winnipeg and Vancouver. The project was initiated in Toronto in collaboration with the Community Alliance for Social Justice. The research will help us understand how Filipino identity is related to economic opportunities, how parental employment is reproduced in the life chances of their children, and how different immigrant settlement sites shape the next generation in important ways.
