Abstract:The purpose of this study was to document ways that visible and ethnic minority women in Ottawa think about the quality of their lives. Data collection involved three group interviews with a Somali, an Arabic-speaking, and a Vietnamese group of women. The sample consisted of eleven women in total. Participatory approaches were used to influence project and methodology design. The findings showed that the well-being and inclusion of the participants' children in Canadian society were of highest importance to them. In addition, participants discussed discrimination against various groups in the area of employment and housing. Other areas of importance were the education system, parenting and marriage support for newcomers, health and religion. These documented perceptions were used to develop a set of grassroots indicators of quality of life, which contributed to the development of the Social Planning Council of Ottawa's Bank of Knowledge.
