"By 2010, the Philippines became Canada's largest source of short- and long-term migrants, surpassing China and India, both of whose populations vastly exceed that of the Philippines. The fourth-largest visible minority group in the country, the Filipino community is frequently associated with such figures as the victimized nanny, the selfless nurse, and the gangster youth. On one hand, these narratives concentrate attention, although in narrow and stereotypical ways, on critical issues. On the other, they render invisible other serious matters facing Filipino communities.

This groundbreaking work, the first wide-ranging edited collection on Filipinos in Canada, explores gender, migration and labour, youth, and the politics of identity. Looking at these from the vantage points of anthropology, cultural studies, education, geography, history, information science, literature, political science, sociology, and women and gender studies, Filipinos in Canada provides a strong foundation for further research." - p.[i].
