My recent research has examined the labour market trajectories of Filipino immigrants and their children in Toronto, the transnational linkages forged with communities and families in the Philippines, and the process of socio-economic change in sending areas. Conceptually, I am interested in the interface between political economy approaches to class and labour markets, and cultural approaches that explore the intersection of class and other bases of identity. My current research project examines the potential of migrant social networks in the development of transnational alternative economic practices between Canada and the Philippines.

Current Research Projects

Toronto Immigrant Employment Data Initiative

Summary: 
The Toronto Immigrant Employment Data Initiative (TIEDI) seeks to assist organizations whose mandate includes the better integration of immigrants into Toronto's labour force. Such partner organizations include immigrant service agencies and advocacy groups, employer associations, regulatory bodies, professional associations, training organizations, labour organizations, and credential assessment agencies. The purpose of the project is to provide such organizations with free access to statistical data and analysis on various aspects of immigrant labour market integration.

FIlipino Youth Transitions in Canada

Summary: 
The Filipino Youth Transitions in Canada (FYTiC) project was started in 2010. We initiated the project because research by Statistics Canada showed that Filipino-Canadian youth are not, on average, doing well in education and employment after they leave high school. Our research aims to find out why this is so, and what can be done about it. The study involves collaborative research (both quantitative and qualitative) in Toronto, Hamilton, Winnipeg and Vancouver. The project was initiated in Toronto in collaboration with the Community Alliance for Social Justice. The research will help us understand how Filipino identity is related to economic opportunities, how parental employment is reproduced in the life chances of their children, and how different immigrant settlement sites shape the next generation in important ways.

Canada-Philippines Alternative Transnational Economies

Summary: 
Examining how the Filipino diaspora in Canada engages with the Philippines through care, solidarity and alternative economies.

Description: 
In this collaborative research project we are interested in transnational economic practices that fall outside either the mainstream economy of corporate trade and investment or the private flows of remittances between family members. We are instead seeking those linkages that depend on the social networks created by migration and which generate or promote collectivized or non-monetized forms of well-being. This includes: humanitarian fundraising for typhoon victims; collective financing of social infrastructure such as school or clinics; the donation of volunteer skilled labour by members of the Filipino diaspora who return to the Philippines; networks of unpaid labour to care for children and the elderly; the fostering of alternative economic imaginaries through activism; the creation of channels to export products from small-scale and sustainable enterprises in the Philippines. Our research will profile these kinds of practices, will assess them critically, and will seek to foster the expansion of socially beneficial transnational economic practices. The project is based at the York Centre for Asian Research at York University, Toronto, and it is lead by Philip Kelly. Our core research team includes Leonora Angeles (University of British Columbia, Vancouver), Lynne Milgram (OCAD University, Toronto), Marla Asis (Scalabrini Migration Centre, Quezon City), Jeff Ducanes (University of the Philippines, Quezon City) and Andre Ortega (University of the Philippines, Quezon City). Melissa Gibson is the Manila-based coordinator and research assistant.
