Immigrants' Attitudes toward their Children's
Inter-Ethnic Marriages

in   a   Canadian Community*

by  Peter D.  Chimbos  **

     Many   articles and books have been written about  the Dutch, Greek
and  Czechoslovakian   minorities in Canada,   but the  families of these
groups, as such, have  not been  subject to study.' A review  of the liter-
ature on  ethnic groups in Canada  indicates that the studies and writings
on  these three ethnic minorities have focused  primarily on  their demo-
graphic problems   and historical backgrounds,2 but are limited as to the
problems  and  other aspects of their family life. Although some   studies
have  been done  in the family life of other ethnic minorities' in Canada,
