Authors:  (Cherylynn Bassani & M. Anne George)
This study was supported by funding from the Canadian Social Science Research Council.
This chapter is a product of the New Canadian Children and Youth Study (Principal Investigators: Morton Beiser, Robert Armstrong, Linda Ogilvie, Jacqueline Oxman-Martinez, Joanna Anneke Rummens), a national longitudinal survey of the health and well being of more than 4,000 newcomer immigrant and refugee children living in Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. The NCCYS is a joint collaboration between university researchers affiliated with Canada’s four Metropolis Centres of Excellence for research on immigration and settlement, and community organizations representing Afghani, Hong Kong Chinese, Mainland Chinese, Latin American (El Salvadorean, Guatemalan, Colombian), Ethiopian, Haitian, Iranian, Kurdish, Lebanese, Filipino, Punjabi, Serbian, Somali, Jamaican, Sri Lankan Tamil, and Vietnamese newcomers in Canada. The NCCYS team is comprised of: 25 investigators from eight universities (Alberta, British Columbia, Calgary, McGill, Manitoba, Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg) and an internationally recognized children’s hospital (The Hospital for Sick Children) representing multiple disciplines and involving faculty and trainees at various levels, and four research associates; immigrant/ refugee community advisors representing sixteen immigrant communities; as well as a research staff comprised of national coordinators, site coordinators, research assistants and post-doctoral trainees, and numerous interviewers. National project funding for this research initiative is provided by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). Site specific funding is provided by: the federal departments of Canadian Heritage, Citizenship and Immigration Canada, Health Canada, Justice Canada; Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research, Alberta Learning, B.C.
