Official languages and immigration : obstacles and opportunities for immigrants and communities / author: Carsten Quell.: SF31-64/2002E-PDF
"Every year, between 200,000 and 250,000 people are making Canada their new home every year. This constant influx of immigrants is of great value. It helps the country to prosper economically and maintain its demographic stability. It should also reinforce the social and linguistic fabric according to its core values. Unfortunately, this is not always the case: the specific focus of this study are communities where an official language is spoken in a minority context and where there are currently too few immigrants compared with the national average"--Foreword, page 3.
