Publication Series

The Toronto Metropolitan Centre for Immigration and Settlement (TMCIS) runs three publication series in collaboration with the CERC in Migration and Integration at Toronto Metropolitan University.

Working Papers present scholarly research of all disciplines on issues related to immigration and settlement. The purpose is to stimulate discussion and collect feedback.

DemiKnow is an international collaboration among four migration research centres: ECU TRACS Migration Research Network, Edith Cowan University, Australia; Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Migration & Integration, Toronto Metropolitan University, Canada; National Research Centre for Resettlement, Hohai University, China; International Institute of Migration and Development, Kannur University, India. DemiKnow also produces a Working Paper series. 


Research Briefs include short commentaries of 1,000 to 2,500 words on pertinent and/or contemporary issues related to immigration and settlement.

Researcher Highlights are an opportunity to get to know researchers in the field of immigration and settlement. Researcher Highlights are a one-page feature on researcher approach, impact on the community, key research on their interests, and researcher next steps.
