Newfiki

Canada has an open immigration policy designed to attract new immigrants. Many come from the former Socialist block, creating new diaspora communities. These communities gradually grow, forming a significant part of the Canadian population. This project focuses on diaspora groups established by recent immigrants to Canada from the former socialist block. It concentrates on the ways newcomers respond and contribute to their new locations, creating a new sense of belonging and identity. A particular focus is placed on the ways that new immigrants selectively maintain or abandon their European beliefs and practices, while simultaneously absorbing the values and ideas of Canadian society.
