The Changing Canadian Population by Barry Edmonston, Eric Fong


The Changing Canadian Population by Barry Edmonston, Eric Fong

Current social and economic changes in Canada raise many questions. Will Canada's education system be able to maintain its competitiveness when faced with increasing globalization? Will the growing numbers of immigrants and their children be successfully integrated? How will Canada's social institutions respond to a rapidly aging population? The Changing Canadian Population assembles answers from many of Canada's most distinguished scholars, who reassess the current state of society and Canada's preparedness for the challenges of the future.


With its ethnically diverse, ageing and geographically distributed population, Canada provides a fascinating case study of contemporary population issues. The Changing Canadian Population is a timely intervention in the field. Drawing together contributions from some of Canada's leading demographers, sociologists and economists, Barry Edmonston and Eric Fong have edited an excellent collection of chapters on topics as diverse as population growth, income, ageing, labour market outcomes, immigration, fertility, urbanization, patterns of cohabitation and ethnicity. British Journal of Canadian Studies The editors deserve praise for producing a fairly comprehensive and well-integrated volume and concise introductory overview of its contents. An indispensable resource for policy makers, researchers, and students alike. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Choice
