Metropolis BC

The Metropolis Project

PLEASE NOTE:

Metropolis British Columbia was an active research centre for 17 years, from 1996 to 2013 (between 1996 and 2007 it was called the Centre of Excellence for Research on Immigration and Integration in the Metropolis, and was then renamed Metropolis British Columbia). This website preserves the main contributions of MBC and its content is now frozen. We consider it a lasting public record of a very productive period of research on immigrant settlement and integration in Canada. We hope that Canadians (and others) will find it a valuable resource.
