Jamie Liew and Donald Galloway
Canadian immigration and citizenship law has been subject to frequent and seemingly frenzied revision and reformulation by the government of the day as it attempts to identify the country’s social, economic, and demographic needs and to respond to perceived threats to its sovereign control over Canada’s borders.
This book builds upon the first edition as an introductory guide to immigration, refugee, and citizenship law. Its aim is to provide an overview, or a starting point, both for those who want to investigate the mechanics of Canada’s immigration regime and for those who want to assess, critique, or question the aims and impacts of the law.
