The IHSP Policy Talks Seminar Series at McGill University is hosting a seminar on the impact of COVID on immigrant and racialized communities in Montreal. The talk presents the findings of a study on the impacts of the COVID crisis on vulnerable groups within Montreal's immigrant and racialized communities. In April-May 2020, interviews were conducted with 50 key informants from community groups providing services to newcomers and ethnocultural associations in Montreal. Findings suggest that the COVID crisis disproportionately affects racialized groups with certain characteristics, including low SES, precarious migratory status, non-English or French speaking, or employment in the health sector or certain other ‘essential’ sectors.
The seminar will take place on November 3, 2020 12:30-1:30pm EST. The speakers include:
