Exploring the Link Between Neighbourhood and Newcomer Immigrant Health

This descriptive qualitative study examined both the “place-based” characteristics of St. James Town (SJT) and individual-level factors, including newcomer immigrants’ perceptions of the neighbourhood, their social relations, and their access to health and social services in the neighbourhood.  The study focused on ethno-racial newcomer immigrant populations: Tamil, Filipino, and Chinese (Mandarin speaking) and compared their experiences with those of Canadian-born residents in the neighbourhood.  The study also interviewed health and social service providers in SJT and the surrounding area.
