A public symposium on the ‘Integration of Immigrants into Host Societies: Multiculturalism and Other Approaches’ will take place on October 4 from 3:00 – 5:00pm at Simon Fraser University (SFU) Harbour Centre, Room 1430 (515 West Hastings Street).
Population aging and changes in the economy have led to increased rates of labour migration into many industrialized countries. Five prominent journalists and academics from Japan, South Korea and Canada will discuss the varying approaches to immigration policy in their respective countries. For Japan and South Korea, where the idea of immigration is still very new, what does immigration mean in terms of population diversity and multiculturalism? Is the Canadian model of multiculturalism relevant to the Korean and Japanese contexts?
This event is jointly hosted by the University of Toronto, the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, the UBC Centre for Japanese Research and Institute of Asian Research. To attend or for more information, please contact Heather Kincaide, firstname.lastname@example.org
