The New Canadian Children and Youth Study is a longitudinal study of more than 4,000 children and youth of various ethnocultural backgrounds who have immigrated to Canada. The families of these children are also included in the study. The NCCYS focuses on the physical and mental health of these immigrant children and other factors that affect their health and development. The findings shed light on the challenges encountered by this population and how these children may be able to overcome these challenges and thrive in Canada.
