  • Immigrant Skilled Workers: Should Canada Attract More Foreign Students?
    This paper examines federal and provincial immigration policy and explores some important issues relating to the process of admission of immigrants to Canada. It also analyzes areas where changes are needed to maximize the benefits from immigration to the Canadian economy faced with the challenges of aging population and changing labour market conditions. The paper emphasizes that immigration policy must be focused not simply on bringing in more people, but people who are likely to adapt to the Canadian lifestyle, contribute economically, abide by laws in the country, and become self-supporting.

    Whether dealing with the outcomes of the Enron fiasco or perceived failures by publicly funded K-12 education, citizens increasingly expect and demand action that ensures appropriate accountability mechanisms are in place. Jim Marshall and Larry Steeves in their paper “Improving Accountability Models in Public Education: Applying Logic Models of Performance Management” examine the current use of accountability framework models as they relate to publicly funded education in North America and compare them to more complex models developed in the field of public administration and public policy.
