The Western Centre for Research on Migration and Ethnic Relations at The University of Western Ontario, in partnership with the Canada-U.S. Institute, is hosting the conference ‘Taking Stock of a Turbulent Decade and Looking Ahead: Immigration to North America 2000-2010’ April 28-30 at the Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre. This will be the first in a series of conferences hosted by the centre as part of their Western Migration Conference Series.

This is an inter-disciplinary and international event with Canadian and American expert panelists speaking on five related themes, poster presentations showcasing recent findings in the area and two keynote addresses sponsored by the Harold Crabtree Foundation Award in Public Policy. The two keynote speakers will be John Biles, Citizenship and Immigration Canada, and Pia Orrenius, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

‘Taking Stock of a Turbulent Decade and Looking Ahead’ will explore the multifaceted and dynamic nature of immigration to Canada and the United States, providing a forum to discuss the future of immigration to North America.
