Welcoming immigrants and refugees to Canada : the role of municipalities : toolkit for inclusive municipalities in Canada and beyond / written for the Canadian Commission for UNESCO (CCUNESCO) by Paul...: K34-8/2019E-PDF
"People have always been on the move: to seek economic or labour opportunities, to study, to escape war, conflicts, human rights violations or persecution, natural disasters, etc. In recent years, however, the number of migrants and refugees has rapidly grown. In 2017, the number of migrants worldwide reached 258 million, in comparison to 173 million in 2000. Many of these people settle in urban regions. Such rapid globalization, urbanization and migrations pose challenges to social cohesion, inclusion and security. Strengthened coordination and concerted action at the global, regional and national levels is required, as reaffirmed by the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration and the Global Compact on Refugees, both adopted in December 2018"--Background, page 4.
