Access to citizenship provides Canadian citizens with various rights and responsibilities such as the ability to serve on a jury, apply for a passport, vote in elections and even run for political office. It also supports greater community engagement and participation in civic life and in broader society.
The purpose of this project will be to investigate the ways in which access to citizenship impacts health equity and the social determinants of health. Given the complexity of the various dimensions of citizenship, one of the deliverables of this project will be to conduct a literature review to better understand the specific ways in which citizenship impacts one`s economic, health and social outcomes. Furthermore, a think piece and conceptual model will be produced to outline the ways in which citizenship impacts health equity and the social determinants of health of diverse communities as well as how it influences social cohesion in a society.
