Transnational Families: Lone Parenting in a New Country

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Inspired by my many immigrant female students’ anecdotal stories of lone parenting in Canada, I researched transnational migration and how mothers in “flexible families” build social connections in their new communities. What unique adaptive experiences do they face? How can language and settlement services better support their needs?
