Key Findings Summary: The Perception & Reality of "Imported Conflict" in Canada


The Perception and Reality of “Imported Conflict” in Canada is a research report released by The Mosaic Institute. The study is a result of surveys of almost 5,000 people, and interviews and focus groups with 300 Canadians with family connections to conflict zones including: The Sudans; Horn of Africa; The Middle East; Afghanistan; Armenia and Turkey; countries of the former Yugoslavia; Sri Lanka; and India and Pakistan. This report examines Canadians’ preconceptions and concerns about “imported conflict,” and seeks to understand how Canadians who come from conflict-afflicted regions think about those conflicts and respond to them once they are in Canada. These are the report’s key findings.
