Brief substance This paper is based on a set of qualitative studies in Vancouver, Canada, that investigated how migrants from different source countries re-made “home” in its various dimension dimensions – socially and symbolically, as well as in the form of a material space – through work, making friends, health practices and engaging with local institutions. Using a framework employing a lens of transformative agency and a feminist extension of Bourdieu’s theory of capitals, I argue that the quotidian activities of women as they re-make home and negotiate changing family relationships have broader implications for the “care” of the nation through the making of “new citizens”. Such mothering work, reframed as citizenship practices, is not highly visible activity in the public realm but rather the everyday activities of “being-in-place” that transform various forms of capitals in social reproduction
