    • Abstract:
      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 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. By thoroughly capturing the politics, patterns, and paradoxes of contemporary migration, Immigration Canada rethinks the thorny issues and reframes the key debates.
