Immigration Research West

Immigration Reseach West logoImmigration Research West (IRW) is a research group funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada and housed at the University of Manitoba. The purpose of IRW is to enhance research capacity of faculty and students and to work with service providers and government offices to enhance our knowledge of the settlement experiences and outcomes of newcomers to western Canada. Research activities undertaken by IRW focus on citizenship, immigration, settlement and cohesion between immigrants and Canadians.

The CSRS director has participated in the governance of the IRW since it was created, and has been involved in scholarly and executive activities with the IRW’s academics, policy makers, and members of non-governmental organizations for over a decade.
