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 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. Contributors include Naomi Alboim (Queen's University), John Biles (Citizenship and Immigration Canada), Monica Boyd (University of Toronto), Elizabeth Coelho (Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto), Zita De Koninck (Université Laval), Louise Fontaine (Ministère de l'Immigration et des Communautés culturelles du Québec), Annick Germain (INRS-Urbanisation Culture Société), Jack Jedwab (Association for Canadian Studies), Peter S.
