SOSA in the House! (of Commons)

Posted by SOSA web team on October 19, 2017 in News

To stem population loss in Atlantic Canada, the federal government introduced the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program. Dalhousie Sociology and Social Anthropology professors Dr Yoko Yoshida and Dr Howard Ramos were invited as expert witnesses to a House of Commons committee looking into immigration to the region. They advocated for more attention to family immigration and thinking outside the box when it comes to immigrant retention. You can see what they had to say here (from about 14 mins 50 sec).
