This paper examines developments in research on immigrant/newcomer philanthropy in Canada based on a broad review of the literature. The aim is to recognize the heterogeneous nature of the immigrant population along with ethnocultural similarities and differences between them. As well, this review aims to identify the antecedent factors that influence immigrant and newcomer philanthropic practices and understandings which can be informed from individual experiences in their country of origin (COO). It also examines the factors that support or discourage charitable giving once living in Canada. This review identifies five core themes based upon a review of 112 studies, articles and government documents.
