Naturalisation and the Promotion of the Social Integration of Immigrants in Quebec
Abstract:This chapter highlights the links between naturalisation and immigrants' social integration, on the basis of the experience in the Canadian province of Quebec. Immigration policies in Canada are aimed at permanent settlement. Access to naturalisation is viewed as the natural consequence of granting the right of permanent residence. The high level of naturalisation of immigrants is seen as an indicator of integration.
