Into the Unknown

How much has the immigrant experience changed in the last 50 years?

A popular narrative about Canada is one that says we are a welcoming and multicultural mosaic. But a 2018 Statistics Canada report says: roughly one in seven people who make the move to Canada decide to leave within five years. Journalist Doug Saunders most recent book, Maximum Canada, even argues that keeping immigrants has been a problem for Canada since Confederation. 

Here is a story about an immigrant couple from Glasglow, Scotland who arrived in 1969. Ron and Margaret Miller look back at the barriers they face trying to integrate into Canadian society. Professor Myer Siemiatycki, a Ryerson faculty member in the Department of Political Science, weighs in about why he thinks people do not find Canada a place they can thrive. How much has the immigrant experience changed since Ron and Margaret arrived fifty years ago?

The story contains language that might offend some listeners.
