Special Lecture on Multiculturalism Policy

Sept 8, 2009

Atlantic Metropolis Centre Saint Mary's University,
Halifax, NS





In September 2009, Irene Bloemraad, a Scholar in CIFAR’s Social Interactions, Identity and Well-Being (SIIWB) program, presented her recent work on multiculturalism policy at a special lecture in Halifax co-sponsored by The Metropolis Centre in Atlantic Canada. 


The Centre is a consortium of academic researchers, government representatives, and non-governmental organizations dedicated to pursuing policy-relevant research related to immigration, population migrations, and cultural diversity. Thirty people attended Dr. Bloemraad‘s talk entitled “Canadian Exceptionalism? Multiculturalism and Immigrants’ Political Integration in Comparative Perspective.” The diverse audience included members of the Atlantic Metropolis Centres at both Dalhousie and St. Mary’s Universities, representatives from Citizenship & Immigration Canada, the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration, and the Maritime Immigrant Settlement Association, and faculty members and students from Dalhousie’s Departments of Economics, Sociology and Political Science.
