From Kerala to Canada: The Situation of the Malayalee Students in Toronto
With Lijo Lal, University of Kerala
Malayalee migrants from Kerala, India are one of the fastest growing ethnolinguistic groups in Canada. This talk examines the experiences of Malayalee international students in the GTA. This group faces multiple challenges, including multi-level financial struggles, emotional and stress issues, personality changes, lack of support system, problems with housing and accommodation, and racism.
Lijo Lal is a PhD candidate in sociology at the University of Kerala who received a MITACS fellowship to conduct fieldwork in Toronto. The talk is based on three months of qualitative field research and secondary sources.
