There is now a fairly extensive academic literature on the experiences of second generation youth, and on the Filipino community in Canada. Much of it is in academic journals and books that are not easily accessible to the wider community. Some research material is, however, freely accessible on-line. Here we list some important recent articles that serve as the context for the FYTiC project (please send us suggestions if more could be added to this list to firstname.lastname@example.org):
