Marie Curie event at Carleton University


This research workshop will focus on the integration issues facing migrants and refugees in Canada and in the countries of the European Union. Particular attention will also be paid to the given pathways available for migrants to enter the labour market. Labour market integration is perceived as an extremely important measure of integration, because it leads to successful resettlement and positive long-term integration outcomes for individual migrants, their families, and also for the host country. Yet, these outcomes can vary quite dramatically between different EU member states and Canada. In this context, some migrant groups may be perceived as being more privileged than other groups. The event will thus also explore integration issues of one such a seemingly privileged group in Canada, i.e. EU citizens.


Welcome remarks will be offered by Manfred Auster, Delegation of the European Union to Canada


Panelists will include Canadian and European experts: 

Howard Duncan, Metropolis International

Sona Kalantaryan, European University Institute

Ümit Kiziltan, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada

Oliver Schmidtke, University of Victoria
