Punjabi participants wanted for paid York University study in Mississauga, Brampton, and rest of GTA

There’s a new study looking for participants with a Punjabi background that could lead to a payday for residents in Mississauga, Brampton and across the GTA.

The study comes from the City Institute at York University and aims to examine the different linguistic and ethnic communities in Toronto and across the GTA, leading to a call for native English speakers who have a Punjabi language background.

York says applicants will be required to answer some simple questions about their background and culture over Zoom or in-person.

Those who are selected will move on to two sessions – one with a fieldworker and a second group session with three other participants and one researcher and one fieldworker.

The entire study will take around two hours and selected residents will be paid $50 for participating, York says.

Participants are not required to speak Punjabi but must have lived in the GTA for their entire life or at least for 20 years, and the study is open to those between 18 and 30 years of age or those who are 45 years old or older.

The university says applications are open to anyone who meets the criteria and lives in the GTA.
