To stay or not to stay: The geographies of immigrant integration, transnationalism, and return migration intentions among African immigrants in Canada

Book cover Black Canadians

Principal Investigator: Joseph Mensah

Funding: SSHRC.

Term: 2017-2022.

The study examines the return intentions of African immigrants in Canada, drawing on the experiences of Ghanaians and Somalis in Toronto and Vancouver.  More pointedly, the project seeks to understand the intersections of African immigrants’ integration, transnationalism, and return intentions, and to predict the background and spatio-temporal attributes of African immigrants who are more likely to return to their home countries.
