Since its inception, the Kingston Immigration Partnership has engaged in research to help gain a better understanding of the lives of newcomers in Kingston and immigration trends more broadly. KIP staff have gathered data through individual interviews, focus groups, and surveys; our work has also been informed by government statistical data and research conducted at Queen’s University and other institutions.
The KIP Council may set research priorities each year as part of its Annual Agenda. These priorities may focus on understanding a specific group of newcomers in Kingston, such as refugees, or learning more about specific challenges that all newcomers face. As well, KIP staff may investigate best practices from other cities and conduct feasibility studies on potential future actions.
If you have any questions related to research, please contact the KIP Researcher for more information.
