Immigration and Integration in Canada in the Twenty-First Century
May 26, 2010
The “two-way street” of successful integration requires commitment from both government institutions and individuals. Immigration and Integration in Canada in the Twenty-first Century looks at the social, cultural, economic, and political integration of newcomers and minorities and establishes measures for assessing the success of integration practices.
The book is divided into two sections. In the first section, authors review the current literature on the topic, using it to develop practical indicators that can be used to measure each group’s relative success in integration. The second section addresses the context of various forms of integration, providing detailed information on Canada’s integration efforts. Together the two sections present broad overviews of issues related to integration.
