Spotlight on Migration

The Spotlight on Migration Series is produced jointly by the Centre for Immigration and Settlement (TMCIS) and the CERC in Migration and Integration at Toronto Metropolitan University.

Spotlight on Migration pieces include a combination of research-informed overviews, opinion pieces, and blog posts focused on issues, themes, and questions related to migration. The purpose is to generate discussion and address popular misconceptions. The views expressed by the author(s) do not necessarily reflect those of the TMCIS or the CERC in Migration and Integration.

Please contact us with any questions about TMCIS and CERC in Migration and Integration publications.
