Wilfrid Laurier University is pleased to partner with the Town of Milton and the Milton Public Library to present the ninth annual Laurier Milton Lecture Series.

The key to belonging is friendship. Making friends across ethnic groups during the adolescent years should be easy and natural, but it is not. Canadian research examining friendship and social interaction between immigrant and non-immigrant youth suggest that stories of acceptance are the exception rather than the norm. This lecture examines the central role that friendship plays in the lives of immigrant youth and the interactions between immigrant adolescents and their Canadian-born peers at school.
