Canada and the United States remain among the most important immigrant-receiving nations, and both nations include large linguistic minorities. Their postwar immigration and refugee policies have been shaped by different philosophies. What can we learn by comparing their experiences? And to what extent does dominant-language fluency determine labor market earnings for immigrants?

To answer these and other questions this volume offers essays and commentaries by leading economists and demographers from both sides of the border.

Barry R. Chiswick is research professor and head of the economics department at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
