  • Project Team

This project will examine the differences in immigration policies between these two countries. It will explore how institutionalized channeling in Canada has created a migration process with labour market outcomes that may be quite distinct from that of the United States. This project will utilize the Canadian Census from 1971 till 2001, 2011 Labour Force Survey along with the US Census.
