Description:In recent years immigration policy has become a highly salient issue in most western democracies. Both Canada and the United States are actively engaged in attempting to revise their basic immigration policies. Involvement
by Canadian provinces is longstanding and has been primarily motivated by cultural, linguistic and economic considerations and tends to be pro-immigration. The reverse is true in the case of many American states, which participate only in refugee resettlement but not the bulk of immigration. Using a comparative case study of Quebec and Georgia, this lecture will present a clearer picture of the diversity of immigration policies being applied
throughout North America and the success of those programs.
Please Note:This lecture will take place in Regina and will be video-conferenced to a Saskatoon audience.
