Our research is on understanding the difficulties immigrants and international students face at workplaces in Canada. Participants were interviewed as individuals or in family settings. International students are defined as those who obtain a student visa and study in Canada. Immigrants are defined as people who have legally immigrated in various ways, excluding refugees. Interview time: 60 to 120 minutes. Age: 10-60 years old. Sample size: over 50.

Learning Outcomes:
  • International students struggle with language, insufficient working experiences, unfamiliar workplaces;
  • Immigrants struggle with expectations of job applications before and after immigration;
  • Immigrants face gender roles issues; hard for women to apply for jobs
