Evaluating Canada's New Immigration and Refugee Protection Act in Its Global Context
AbstractThe author examines the changes to Canadian Immigration Law in the new Immigration and Refugee Protection Act in a global context. She identifies three categories of changes: those that legislate current practice, those that are partial attempts to include legal recommendations, and those that are a direct response to globalization. The author concludes that overall, immigration law in Canada is resistant to substantial change, in spite of major efforts at public consultation. As a result, despite considerable changes in new legislation, the central features of the old legislation have remained intact.
