Global Restructuring, Immigration and Settlement in Canada

Book - 2004
Rate this:
Debunking the common perception that immigrants are admitted into a new country because of the host country's generosity and willingness to provide refuge and security, this collection of immigrant case studies suggests that immigrants are admitted to serve a host country's economic interests or to make good on a national debt. The firsthand experiences of Ghanaian women, migrant sex-workers, foreign-trained professionals, and Canadian aid workers reveal that the host country often reaps benefits from immigration. The impact of policies and regulations on real people are thoughtfully explored in this biting indictment of the selfish motivations that power admittance and rejection cater to in the immigration process.
