Dear Community Members and Friends,

With the arrival of people from the continent of Africa and other parts of the world,  Edmonton's culture and heritage is continually enriched. To fully comprehend the diversity and experiences of people from Africa immigreating to Edmonton, the Council for the Advancement of African Canadians in Alberta (Africa Centre) engaged sociology researcher at  the University of Alberta to review research literature and to hold indepth interviews with individuals from Africa,

  • transitioning into their new community,

  • interaction with Canadian institutions,

  • challenges faced,

  • strategies employed to overcome them,
