Home leaving trajectories in Canada: exploring cultural and gendered dimensions
independence for British-Canadians; schooling for Chinese-Canadians, and
marriage for Indo-Canadians, (e) among all four groups, home returners leave
home initially at younger ages and, with the exception of Indo-Canadian young men, who typically leave home for school, and (f) gender differences in home
leaving trajectory are larger among the Chinese and Indo-Canadians than among persons of European origins. Overall, we conclude that the theorized trend of the individualized family life course holds for only some ethnocultural groups in Canada. We conclude with suggestions for future research directions on the topic of ethnicity and the home leaving life course transitions.
