I am interested in Luso-Canadian transnationals’ experiences re-integrating in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) after living in central Portugal. Further, I am researching the services, community engagement, and organizational power of the established Portuguese community in the GTA. I seek to understand what is available in the community for these transnational migrants including service provision, language classes (both English and Portuguese), and integration methods.
