Description

Canadian society is rapidly changing. This concise, up-to-date volume masterfully captures this change. Edited by two of Canada's leading demographers, Roderic Beaujot and Don Kerr, this book is an exciting entry in Canadian population studies, drawing from a variety of disciplines, including sociology, geography, economics, history, and epidemiology.

The Changing Face of Canada is an essential text for demography courses across the country.

Each reading has been meticulously edited and concisely ordered into five essential sections:

  • fertility
  • mortality
  • international migration, domestic migration and population distribution
  • population aging
  • population composition

Vital issues include: the role of immigration in Canada's future; the deteriorating economic welfare of immigrants; globalization, undocumented migration, and unwanted refugees; Aboriginal population change; implications of unprecedented low fertility; and the astonishing demographic transformation of Canadian cities.

Editorial Review

"This book is well organized and at exactly the right academic level for [undergraduate readers]. It provides a comprehensive look at Canadian demography and should fill a void in Canadian demography readings. The book is well balanced for demography courses in history, sociology, and geography."— “David K. Foot, University of Toronto
