This policy paper begins by setting out the alternative public policy objectives of a nation's immigration policy. It then proceeds to an analysis of the difference between the policy objectives and immigration outcomes between Canada and the US. Based on demographic and labor force developments in advanced economies it discusses likely immigration movements in the 21st century-- low skilled immigration primarily for elder care and child care and very high skilled migration among STEM workers who have internationally transferable skills.
