Gender Differences and Commonalities in the Integration of Luso-Canadians
University of Toronto, Department of Spanish and Portuguese/Friends of Portuguese Studies/Amigos dos Estudos Portugueses
Research indicates that Portuguese-Canadians display significantly lower educational, income and academic achievement levels, in comparison to both the Canadian mainstream, as well as to other large minority groups. Yet, little of this work has explored the existence of any gender differences, within these phenomena. This paper will highlight some of the available census information on differences and similarities in indicators of Portuguese-Canadian integration, as well as between Luso-Canadian and other minority women. The paper will also discuss the implications of these differences to the future of the community.
