Abstract

This chapter introduces the topics and policies of immigration, multiculturalism, and citizenship with an eye towards Canada’s foundation and evolution as a settler-colony. It utilises an intersectional approach attuned to settler-colonialism, heteropatriarchy, race/ethnicity. Attention is paid to recent debates that underscore how these policy fields are shaped by the international environment. This includes themes relating to anti-terrorism, Islamophobia, and the refugee crisis. The chapter argues that these areas of public policy in Canada are distinct in that they interface domestic and global forces, but like other elements of Canadian public policy carry gendered implications.
