Exploring the Entrepreneurial Activities of Newcomers in the Greater Toronto Area is a multi-year collaborative research study conducted by researchers from Ryerson Centre for Immigration and Settlement (RCIS), in partnership with Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). This study will explore entrepreneurship as an option for economic integration for newcomers living in the Greater Toronto Area.

The project's major areas of the interest are to examine the level of entrepreneurial activity amongst newcomers in Ontario, explore the pathways to and the role of social capital in these individuals’ entrepreneurial activities, and to understand the barriers faced by newcomer entrepreneurs seeking to scale up their businesses.

With the goal of understanding and fostering inclusive citizenship in Canada, this study employs an intersectionality perspective to explore the experiences of newcomer entrepreneurs over the age of 25 living in the Greater Toronto Area.
