The purpose of the study was to explore influences on identity development among Filipino-Canadian young adults involved in social action efforts. Participants were ten Filipino young adults residing in Toronto, Ontario. All were members of a local social justice organization in that area. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with participants. Five themes emerged from the interview data. The themes included migration patterns, racism and discrimination, gender roles and expectations, religion and spirituality, and community organization. The themes were compared and contrasted with the available literature.
