Abstract

Fourth wave Russian migrants in Montréal pose an interesting case for ethnographers. Unlike many other immigrant groups residing in Montréal and in Canada, few community associations exist-and in many cases Russian migrants may live for years never knowing other Russians living just blocks away. The body of literature concerning immigrant settlement and integration often contradicts these findings. This thesis will explore the attributes, attitudes and modes of existence of Russians residing in Montréal in the hopes of providing insights into the theoretical models that govern the research on migration
