Family Class Immigration: Implications for Post-Multiculturalism

Abstract

This paper examines the implications of post-multiculturalism for family class immigration to Canada. The authors argue that the goal off acilitating family reunification is not facilitated by Canadian immigration policy. A new, more inclusive definition of ''family,'' one that reflects the cultural and social diversity of newcomer groups must be adopted in order for the reunification program to fulfill its mandate.
