Summary, etc.:
This book investigates the realities of immigrating to Canada. Examining historical immigration policies, the authors note that these policies were always fundamentally racist, favouring whites unless hard labourers were needed. Although current policies are no longer explicitly racist, they do continue to favour certain kinds of applicants. Many recent immigrants to Canada are highly trained and educated professionals, and yet few of them, contrary to the myth, find work in their area of expertise. Despite the fact that these experts could contribute significantly to Canadian society, deeply ingrained racism, suspicion, and fear keep immigrants out of these jobs. On the other hand, Canada also requires construction workers, nannies, and agricultural workers - but few immigrants who do this work qualify for citizenship. About Canada : immigration argues that we need to move beyond the myths and build an immigration policy that meets the needs of Canadian society.
