[...] Below, we present a brief review of the recent literature on the topic of immigrant settlement outside of gateway cities in the four regions, and outline the gaps in this literature. [...] This proximity of the selected study cites to Toronto enabled us to examine the relationship between settlement in a second-tier city and the geographical proximity to the ethnic and institutional resources available in Toronto. [...] An overview of the interview themes was made available to all participants in advance of the interviews to allow them to review the material and prepare for the sessions.
