Seventh Annual Journeys of Migration
Did It Happen Here? Canadian Attitudes toward Immigration and Cultural Diversity in the Age of Trump and Brexit
Michael Adams, President of the Environics Institute, will discuss Canadians’ social attitudes and their potential susceptibility to populist anti-immigrant, prejudicial sentiment. This presentation will include up-to-date findings on Canadians’ attitudes toward immigrants and refugees in an international context; attitudes toward ethnic and religious diversity; the experiences of discrimination of ethnic and racial minorities; and definitions of Canadian identity. What drives variations in Canadians’ attitudes over time? Are Canadian attitudes susceptible to international influences? And was the upcoming/recent federal election impacted by Canadians’ changing views on immigration and cultural diversity? These questions and others will be considered over the course of this presentation.
Tickets: Attendance is free but registration is required.
The Event is presented by the Western Centre for Research on Migration and Ethnic Relations, the London and Middlesex Local Immigration Partnership, Collège Boréal, the London Cross Cultural Learner Centre, the South London Neighbourhood Resource Centre, and Pillar Nonprofit Network.
