Dalhousie researchers examine increasing trend of migrants crossing border into Canada
An increasing number of migrants are crossing the U.S. border by foot to seek asylum in Canada. Emerson, Manitoba, has had a significant increase this year, with over 400 people (primarily from Somalia and Ghana) entering the country through the small border town. This is compared to 68 in 2013.
Dalhousie University’s Howard Ramos, a professor of sociology, and Yoko Yoshida, an associate professor of sociology, are studying the demographic trends of Canadian immigration, focusing on non-economic and non-traditional pathways of migration. Dr. Ramos and Dr. Yoshida are working with the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada, and Statistics Canada to look at administrative records to track trends over time.
