Overview


Drawing on a great many in-depth interviews with government officials and front-line workers, contributors provide a comparative assessment of approaches to immigrant settlement in nineteen Canadian municipalities. This is complemented by a discussion of the federal government's role in this policy field, and by a comprehensive introduction and conclusion, which ground the book historically and thematically, synthesize its key findings, and provide recommendations for addressing the challenges related to intergovernmental cooperation, settlement service delivery, and overall immigrant outcomes. Individual chapters examine the mechanics of public policy-making but also tell a story about diverse and innovative approaches to immigrant settlement in Canada's towns and cities, about gaps and problems in the system, and about the ways in which governments and communities are working together to facilitate integration. Contributors include Zainab Amery Carleton University, Caroline Andrew University of Ottawa, Guy Chiasson Université du Québec en Outaouais, Rodney Haddow University of Toronto, Rachida Abdourhamane Hima Government of Canada, Christine Hughes Carleton University, Serena Kataoka University of Victoria, Junichiro Koji University of Ottawa, Warren Magnusson University of Victoria, Daiva Stasiulis Carleton University, Erin Tolley Queen's University, and Robert Young University of Western Ontario.
