[Research] Settling the Unsettled: A Qualitative Study of Hong Kong Diaspora in Canada, United Kingdom, and Taiwan

Investigators: Dr. Miu Chung Yan (Principal), Dr. Barbara Lee, and Dr. Mooly Wong

HKSI Faculty Associate Dr. Miu Chung Yan (Social Work) and collaborators are conducting a qualitative study to understand how emigrants from Hong Kong who have moved to Canada, the United Kingdom or Taiwan have settled and integrated themselves into the local communities. The study will also explore how such settlement and integration processes have influenced the emigrants’ perceived identities as well as their connections with both Hong Kong and their host countries.

Interviewees should be between 25 and 50 years old (at the time of their arrival in Canada),  should have moved with their immediate family directly from Hong Kong to Canada (particularly Toronto or Vancouver), and should have resided in Canada for at least 12 months. Each interview will take between 90 to 120 minutes and will be audio-taped. As a token of appreciation, each participant will receive an honorarium of CAD 30.

Interested participants should contact Dr. Mooly Wong (sowk.hkdstudy@ubc.ca) or Dr. Miu Chung Yan (miu.yan@ubc.ca).
