This paper discusses the subjects of immigration, race and gender found in the Canadian immigration policy. The major argument of this paper is that neo-liberal policies are combining with the already existent sexist and racist immigration policies of Canada.
From the Paper:"The fact that Canada is an immigrant receiving country has been an important part of Canada's history from the very beginning. However, Canadian immigration policy has traditionally been very sexist and racist. For example, in 'Sponsoring Immigrant Women's Inequalities' Sunera Thobani states, 'The nation was founded through the colonization of Aboriginal Peoples, the subjugation of their sovereignty, and the erosion of traditional and customary Rights'. Aboriginal Women were subjected to white, male domination, as well as to a strengthening of patriarchal relations within Aboriginal communities by the Indian Act. Canadians were originally very overt with their sexist and racist policies."
