Abstract

Building an Inclusive Society: Post-secondary Youth Perspectives on Immigration, Multiculturalism and Racism in Newfoundland and Labrador is a project that seeks to understand youth attitudes towards immigration, multiculturalism, and politics in addition to the experiences of racism among university students within the province. In addition, this project was designed to better understand the program needs and sociological circumstances of youth in St. John’s and surrounding areas and involves surveying, and subsequently analyzing, the views of postsecondary students in Newfoundland and Labrador. It also aims to gain a better understanding of how and why such attitudes are formed in order to test existing theories established by scholars. By capturing and understanding the attitudes of students in Newfoundland and Labrador, this report will not only add to a growing body of literature, but will also complement existing community efforts to enhance the integration of newcomers. As such, this report is a step towards ensuring that newcomers not only integrate into Newfoundland and Labrador society, but feel welcomed while doing so.
