UQAM study reveals the central role that the internet plays in the integration of immigrants in Canada
How are the lives of immigrants transformed by using the internet and its many associated applications? This question was at the heart of the first Canada-wide study on internet use by immigrants to Canada. The study was headed by Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) researchers Christian Agbobli, director of the Social and Public Communication Department, and Magda Fusaro, UQAM's rector, who oversaw the research project in her capacity as holder of the UNESCO chair in Communication and Technologies for Development. The results reveal the central role the internet plays in the empowerment and integration of immigrants in Canada. Funded by the Canadian Internet Registration Authority's (CIRA) Community Investment Program (CIP), the study established a portrait of the use of the internet by immigrants and led to the tabling of multiple recommendations for governments and training organizations that work with immigrants.
