Examining the issues and challenges facing immigrants as they attempt to integrate successfully into Canadian society, Immigrant Integration is a multidisciplinary compendium of research papers, most of which were presented at the 14th National Metropolis Conference, held in Toronto in 2012. With a focus on the future of public policy related to immigration and settlement, this book addresses the growing economic and educational inequality among immigrants and racialized populations in Canada and seeks to guard against further inequities. Each chapter concludes with a clear set of policy recommendations indicating how those in government and the broader public, private, and non-profit sectors can help newcomers integrate and welcome them as contributing members of Canadian society.
