Canadian Migration Patterns From Britain And North America. The character of Canada has always been defined by the successive waves of immigrants that have peopled its vastness, beginning with the six thousand French immigrants who came to settle New France in the latter half of the seventeenth century, and continuing through the present day. Migration and adaptation to a new country have also been prominent themes in Canadian literature, detailed in the works of such authors as Susanna Moodie and Robert Service. In this collection of essays, nineteen Canadianists take a new look at immigration and migration, and how it has affected the development of the country. Drawn from a number of papers presented at the 1998 conference on migration hosted by the Centre of Canadian Studies at the University of Edinburgh, the essays address various aspects of migration in Canada. They range from topics in the eighteenth century to the 1990s, and cover a range of disciplines including geography, economics, sociology, literature, and music. All the essays demonstrate how important immigration and ties to other parts of the world are to Canadians and to the Canadian identity, and how migration is a key issue in Canada's social, economic, political, and cultural life. By addressing aspects of the migration experience – from refugee policy to migration songs – the contributors to this collection have added greater depth and clarity to our understanding of the Canadian identity.

Self Selection Patterns In Mexico U S Migration The Role Of Migration Networks. Abstract: The authors examine the role of migration networks in determining self-selection patterns of Mexico-U.S. migration. They first present a simple theoretical framework showing how such networks impact on migration incentives at different education levels and, consequently, how they are likely to affect the expected skill composition of migration. Using survey data from Mexico, the authors then show that the probability of migration is increasing with education in communities with low migrant networks, but decreasing with education in communities with high migrant networks. This is consistent with positive self-selection of migrants being driven by high migration costs, and with negative self-selection of migrants being driven by lower returns to education in the U.S. than in Mexico.
