Since 2015, Canada has experienced a new wave of influx of Hong Kong residents moving to Canada. While being grateful to have the opportunity to be in Canada, many of these newly arrived Hong Kong residents, including those Canadian citizens who re-returned to Canada after residing in Hong Kong for a long period of time, have faced many challenges in their settlement and integration process.

To better understand the settlement and integration conditions of this new wave of Hong Kong residents to Canada, a team of researchers from the University of British Columbia (Vancouver) School of Social Work, led by Professor Miu Chung Yan, conducted an online survey from December 19, 2022 to February 28, 2023. The preliminary report of the survey is to be released.

In collaboration with Community Family Services of Ontario, Vancouver Hong Kong Forum Society, and UBC Hong Kong Studies, the research team will have an online forum to share some key findings of the survey and to discuss the implications of these findings to the Canadian immigration policies and services related to this group of newcomers.

This event is co-presented by UBC School of Social Work, UBC Hong Kong Studies Initiative, Vancouver Hong Kong Forum Society, and Community Family Services of Ontario.
