Warmth of Welcome: Australian, Canadian, and U.S. Immigration Systems Compared

Leveraging a team of national migration experts and using a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods, our research will advance knowledge in international migration and global talent management, as well as in immigration selection and integration policies and their implications. Sound migration policy is fundamental to the future prosperity and international competitiveness of major migration countries. Drawing data from the 2013 Survey of Adult Skills (available for Australia, Canada, and the U.S.), the Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Australia, and Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Canada, we will conduct both cross-sectional and longitudinal analysis of immigrant labour market performance before and after reform policies in these countries. We will include examining the determinants and outcomes of individual transitional probabilities across different migrant statuses.

Cela a mené à de nombreux travaux examinant l’état de santé, l’utilisation des services de santé et les comportements en matière de santé des immigrants, souvent en comparaison avec les non-immigrants.
