Beyond the romanticized image of newcomers arriving as a "huddled mass" at Halifax's Pier 21, understanding the reality and complexity of immigration today requires an expert guide. In the hands of scholar Augie Fleras, this intricate and ever-changing subject gets the attention it deserves with analysis of all aspects, including admission policies, the refugee processing system, the temporary foreign worker program, and the emergence of transnational identities. Given the unprecedented number of federal policy reforms of the past decade, such a roadmap is essential.

Immigration Canada describes, analyzes, and reassesses immigration in a Canada that is rapidly changing, increasingly diverse, more uncertain, and globally connected. Drawing on the best Canadian and international scholarship, he considers topics of major importance, including:

theories of international migration

the redesign of Canada's immigration program along neoliberal lines

the global refugee crisis and Canada's response by means of the refugee status determination program

a comparison of the Canada immigration model to that of the US and Australia

the role of an official multiculturalism

the contributions of both mainstream and alternative media in influencing the "warmth of the welcome"

the gendered nature of immigration and immigrant experiences

the centrality of transmigration/transnationalism in rethinking the immigration paradigm

the customization of an inclusive Canadian citizenship to reflect the realities of multiversal and transmigrant diversities within a postnational Canada.

By thoroughly capturing the politics, patterns, and paradoxes of contemporary migration, this book rethinks the thorny issues and reframes the key debates.
