Surveys yield general information. Interviews have been selected as a means of getting deeper and richer in-depth information
about the race relations in Thunder Bay. This data will add additional insight into the ways in which racialization occurs,
and the social locations in which it happens. Interview subjects will be drawn from those who respond to the survey and are
willing to be interviewed in greater depth. Interviews will also be conducted with other community members and organizational
representatives. Focus groups may also be utilized. Ongoing thematic analysis will be conducted until a saturation of analytic
categories is achieved.
Since the intent of the interviews is to understand the experience in depth, rather than a
shallow but generalizable level of knowledge, members of the public who are willing to talk about their experiences of racism
are encouraged to contact the research coordinator.
45 people participated in individual and two group interviews.
