Description – This participatory study, carried out in partnership with the Centre d’éducation Populaire René-Goupil (CECRG), aims to document the understanding and experience that children of immigrant backgrounds have of their well-being. The study will help empower participating children, as the results serve to inform CECRG actions and decision-making to better support children’s well-being. The results will also foster a deeper understanding of the cultural and social dimensions of their well-being since similar data was collected in several countries as part of the Children’s Understanding of Well-Being Study (CUWB).
