            Abstract

            This article explores the informal learning processes and the changes in the values of a group of 200 Latin American immigrants to Canada. Results show that the majority of the respondents underwent at least one political or civic learning process, like increasing tolerance or environmental responsibility. The findings also suggest a number of tensions between the set of values brought from the home countries and those incorporated in the home country. The author argues that these tensions led some interviewees through a process of transformative learning.
