Canadian Diversity International Migration: The Emergence of the Mobile Student
The latest edition of Canadian Diversity, entitled International Migration: The Emergence of the Mobile Student, offers a series of articles focusing on international students and immigration policies in Canada and several countries around the world. It approaches this topic through both empirical and qualitative research, thoughtful policy analysis and discussion, and practical examples of programs and initiatives underway in universities and colleges in Canada and abroad. This magazine begins with an analysis of international students in Canada, examining how Canadian policies are adapting to facilitate the arrival and retention of student migrants and identifying future challenges that will require policy attention. Examples of initiatives underway in Canadian cities, universities and colleges shed light on a number of best practices in student integration, creating welcoming communities and helping students transition to permanent residency. These Canadian examples are complemented and contrasted by international perspectives from Australia, Singapore, the Netherlands, the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Portugal and France, creating a truly international overview of an emerging theme in global migration.
