Managing Immigration and Diversity in Canada: A Transatlantic Dialogue in the New Age of Migration

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review


Managing Immigration and Diversity in Canada is a comprehensive collection of information on the Canadian immigration experience that offers a current, detailed synopsis and critical analysis of Canadian and Quebecois immigration issues. Key topics discussed include government jurisdiction over immigration and diversity; management of immigration flows; immigration and the labour market; citizenship, settlement, and socio-cultural integration; linguistic policies and linguistic pluralism; and partnerships and knowledge transfer between government, universities, and civil society. Each section of this volume features national and provincial perspectives in order to address the simultaneous processes of multiculturalism and "multinationalism" in Canada. The Introduction (available at this website) adds an international dimension to this collection, dialoguing with the book's themes and chapters from a European viewpoint and drawing comparisons between both Canada and Spain and Quebec and Catalonia. This book is designed to assist instructors, researchers, and practitioners working in the areas of either Canadian immigration and diversity or comparative migration studies and is also intended for scholars and policy-makers in new, fast-growing countries or regions of immigration, particularly in Southern Europe. This innovative resource includes the contributions of many of Canada's leading experts on immigration and provides a crucial transatlantic perspective on immigration and integration themes. REVIEW: "Managing Immigration and Diversity in Canada offers an excellent and timely addition to our understanding of managing immigrant integration in a time of profound change. While Canada is the focus of analysis, the lessons derived from this comprehensive set of chapters from leading immigration scholars are applicable to other OECD countries. This is essential reading for anyone interested in newcomer settlement and integration policy change." John Shields, Professor, Department of Politics and Public Administration, Ryerson University.
