International Migration to Small and Mid-Sized Cities: Opportunities, Challenges and a New Agenda for Research

This on-line seminar from Dr Melissa Kelly of Ryerson University in Canada will examine international migration to small and mid sized cities from the perspective of a comparative place-based approach.

International migration to Canada is largely an urban phenomenon, with most migrants settling in Canada's largest centres such as Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal. Many smaller communities struggle to attract and even more so retain international migrants.

This has caused policy makers, community stakeholders and researchers to consider what more can be done to improve immigration and integration outcomes in smaller centres.

This talk argues for the importance of a comparative place-based approach to further understanding of international migration to small and mid-sized centres. It outlines a new agenda for research being jointly developed by scholars at Ryerson University, the University of Otago, Monash University, and the University of Calgary.

Hosted by the Centre for Global Migrations.
