African Refugee wanted for Research

Are you an African Refugee in Winnipeg?
Have you been in Canada at least five years?
Are you over 18 years of age?
Are you interested in being part of the solution?
This study is looking for someone like you to tell us, through picture taking and discussion, the ideas and concerns you have about wellbeing of refugees in Winnipeg.

You will be given a single use camera and instructions on how to use it.

You will also have an opportunity to share individually and in a group session the meanings of the pictures you take. All these activities will take you approximately 4 hours of your time.
$40 will be provided to cover your expenses.

More info about the research

Purpose: This study seeks to understand the factors causing mental distress among African refugees in Winnipeg and the resources they use to address these concerns. The study will include perceptions of the members of the African refugee community. If you agree to participate, you will be asked to take pictures that represent both the factors that cause you distress and those that help to release it here in Winnipeg and provide an explanation to each picture taken in an individual meeting with one member of the research team. Then you will be invited to share your perceptions on a select group of pictures taken by you and other participants through a focus group. As a participant you will be asked to keep confidentiality of the information you will hear from other participants.
