Our study examines the psychosocial adjustment of 164 Southern Sudanese men who are resettling in a western Canadian city. Special emphasis is placed on the role of financial and emotional strain associated with their sending money to relatives in Africa. Key findings point to the importance of religiosity in predicting their psychological adjustment, and social support and reduced financial role strain in predicting their social adjustment. Findings serve to guide the provision of culturally appropriate services and policies for African immigrants and refugee claimants in Canada.
