Anchanís Lecture:
Following a brief overview of current research initiatives in International Comparative Education, Culture and Education, Information Technology (Cyberculture & Mobile Technologies), and Immigration & Settlement, the session will focus on the Metropolis affiliated NCCYS project.

The New Canadian Children and Youth Study (NCCYS) is a national longitudinal study of the health and well-being of immigrant and refugee children and their families. A key objective of the study is to extend the 1994 Statistics Canada National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (NLSCY) initiative that studied children that did not include sufficiently large number of immigrant and refugee respondents. The NCCYS study follows participants over several waves to better understand the settlement process of immigrant and refugee families - including the examination of various aspects of life, physical health, mental health, ethnic identity formation, educational experiences, and the family context of settlement. The project entails a series of regionally administered surveysof selected immigrant groups in three waves. Wave 1 data collection ended March 31, 2005 and Wave 2 is set to begin. This study will yield important information for practitioners in the health professions, education professions, immigrant serving agencies and government bureaus. The publications anticipated from the study will enhance our understanding of an under-explored area of Canadian health and social science research and will stimulate further inquiry
