Goan and Anglo-Indian Research Project?
From: G.O.A. )
September 25, 2008

A research project led by Kathryn Da Silva, a PhD student at the University of Ottawa in the field of migration and Canadian studies is being conducted in the form of focus groups. As the Goan community represents a very diverse and dynamic community in the GTA, our experiences being far-reaching and our individual histories very inspiring, we possess invaluable information about how we continue to successfully leave our legacy in Canada. You are invited to share your unique experience in a local focus group discussion about Religion, Culture and Adaptation within Goan and Anglo-Indian Communities and your participation is totally voluntary.

The focus group is designed to look at if, how, and why Goans and Anglo-Indians have managed to “fit in” both religiously and culturally. In particular, input will be requested on:
  • You or your family’s migration to Canada
  • Central aspects of your culture
  • What is important to you about Catholicism
  • Some of the cultural benefits/challenges of life in Canada
  • Some of the religious advantages/disadvantages of life in Canada, and
  • The changing role of religion and ethnicity in your life

The details of the focus groups are as follows:

Date: Mid-November 2008 (choose from 3 different focus group dates)
Time: TBA
Location: Mississauga
Contact: Kathryn Da Silva at

Light refreshments will be served.
