The paper discusses how the policy of immigration and its legal regulation has long been a defining aspect of Canadian social, political, cultural and legal discourse. The paper relates that in the Canadian context, while immigration policy is defined by a range of public and private actors, it is implemented and regulated by state institutions. The paper argues, with reference to a comparative analysis of three recent articles on immigration and diversity from the Toronto Star, the Globe and Mail, and the Ottawa Citizen, that conflicting ideologies and representations of the objects of regulations in these publications reveal the economic and class basis of immigration policy and its legal regulation in Canada today.
From the Paper:"The policy of immigration and its legal regulation has long been a defining aspect of Canadian social, political cultural and legal discourse. As one critic observes: The regulation of immigration has been one of the major social policy instruments employed by capitalist states. Immigration controls and social programs are among the most important means through which states attempt to regulate the size and character of national populations."
