Key Findings from the First Metropolis National Research Competition:
The Labour Market Transitions of Newly Arrived Immigrant Youth: A Tri-Provincial Study

In 2007, University of Manitoba researcher Lori Wilkinson and a team of researchers from the University of British Columbia, McMaster University, and the University of Toronto were successful in the first cycle of the Metropolis National Research Competition.
