Metropolis National Research Competition

 

Since the beginning of Phase 3, the Metropolis Project, in collaboration with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, has run an annual national research competition to select and finance a major national-level policy research project in the field of immigration and diversity. The maximum value of the research grant is $125,000 for 12 to 18 months. The research themes of the competition are determined in consultation with Metropolis partners and have resulted in research projects relevant to policy, programs and decision making in the government and NGO sector.

Please see below for the status of Cycles 1 to 5 of the competition and related research documents.

Cycle 5 (2011-2012): Research Theme: Integrative Capacity of Communities

Executive Summary
Executive Summary

This call for research proposals seeks an analysis of the integrative capacity of communities through the exploration of the factors that influence the ability of a community to successfully settle and integrate immigrants. Based on a representative sample of Canadian communities, this analysis should identify the factors that matter most for the host society side of integration, and, further, isolate those factors that are amenable to policy interventions to increase their integration benefits.

Call for Proposals has been announced. For more information please see:
