Huron County, Ontario – The Huron County Immigration Partnership is seeking participants for a study investigating discrimination experienced by immigrants, visible minorities, and Indigenous people. This study is being carried out by the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute at the University of Guelph, in partnership, and at the request of the Immigration Partnership.
To be eligible to participate, people must be older than 18 years of age, be a resident of Huron County, and identify as an immigrant, visible minority and/or Indigenous person.
Eligible participants will be invited to participate in an individual or group interview via Zoom or phone. Interviews are anticipated to take up to one hour.
Participants will be provided a $50 e-gift card as an expression of gratitude for their time.
“This research builds on a 2021 study that provided statistical data on the scale of discrimination experienced by immigrants, visible minorities and Indigenous people in Huron and Perth Counties,” said Mark Nonkes, Huron County Immigration Partnership Communication Officer. “It’s important to understand what barriers exist so that we can address these issues as we work to build more welcoming communities where everyone feels a sense of belonging.”
