    Hola amigos,

    Estoy suscrita a la lista de Ceris (The Ontario Metropolis Centre), organización anexa a la Universidad de Toronto y recibí este mensaje que me pareció de interés para la lista.

    Saludos 😉


    1) Toronto Immigrant Employment Data Initiative (TIEDI)

    TIEDI has published it’s latest report, focusing on the labour outcomes of university-educated immigrants. The report is available online at

    Findings fr om the report include:

    * Having a university degree does not guarantee better labour market outcomes for immigrants. Immigrants with at least one university degree have
    lower annual earnings than Canadian-born with the same education.
    * The average unemployment rate for all university-educated immigrants is double the unemployment rate for their Canadian-born counterparts even though both groups have similar labour force participation rates.
    * The gap in annual earnings between Canadian-born and immigrant university graduates is larger for immigrants who arrived recently.
    * Female immigrants with at least one university degree have the poorest labour market outcomes. They have lower annual earnings and higher unemployment rates than equally well-educated Canadian-born women, immigrant men and Canadian-born men.
    * University graduates born in Pakistan and Iran report the lowest annual earnings and highest unemployment rates of all immigrants with university degrees. More research is needed to understand the effects of country of birth on the integration of university-educated immigrants in the Toronto labour market.
    * Labour market outcomes are generally better for well-educated immigrants who are 35 to 44 years old: they have higher annual earnings and lower unemployment rates than immigrants in other age groups.

    2) Peel Immigration Labour Market Survey Findings Unveiled

    First Peel-specific report shows immigrants lagging behind in accessing the job market

    The Peel Immigration Labour Market Survey is the first study ever conducted that provides local data on the labour market in Peel, and more specifically, how immigrants are faring in finding employment.
    The short answer: not as well as their Canadian-born counterparts.

    In general, respondents are positive about their places of work. They reported, positive co-worker relations, felt treated fairly by managers, fair advancement processes and reported high commitment to their jobs. For immigrant respondents the study shows a significant
    occupational change fr om managerial and professional positions into sales and service and manual/trades jobs after arrival.

    In the sample of 1,425 immigrants and Canadian-born Peel residents surveyed:

    – Of the immigrant respondents who have international work experience, only one third was successful in obtaining their desired employment.
    – Lack of Canadian work experience was reported as the barrier faced most often for immigrants and correspondingly, lack of work experience was reported most often by Canadian-born individuals.
    – Networking was a serious barrier for both immigrants and Canadian-born individuals but more significant for immigrants.
    – One in four immigrants accessed some government-funded employment services, and just under one-third obtained more education in Canada.
    – Both immigrants and Canadian-born individuals report
    underutilization of their skills in their current job.

    The key findings outlined in the final report suggest that there is a lot of talent going to waste in the Peel community among various groups of workers,especially immigrants. The recommendations identify several areas where action can be taken by Community Organizations,
    Private and Public Sector Employers and all levels of Government to help improve the situation.

    The study was funded by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities and conducted in collaboration with Ryerson’s Diversity Institute in Management and Technology. The complete report of survey findings and recommendations is available at For more information contact Laureen Rennie, Project Manager Peel Immigration Labour Market Survey at or call 905 791-7800 ext 8032.

    3) Call for papers: Journal of Public Management and Social Policy (JPMSP) issue on “Immigration and the Public Service”


    Following the October, 2010 Southeastern Conference on Public Administration (SECOPA) meeting where a two-session panel on immigration was held, Christopher Daniel of Kentucky State University and Darlene Xiomara Rodriguez of University of North Carolina at Greensboro decided to propose to the Journal of Public Management and Social Policy (JPMSP) that they do a symposium issue on “Immigration and the Public Service”. They accepted our proposal and the JPMSP has issued the “Call for Papers” which is listed below.

    JPMSP is jointly sponsored by the American Society for Public Administrator’s (ASPA) “Conference of Minority Public Administrators” (COMPA) and the “National Center for Public Performance” at Rutgers. The website is: .

    In addition to sending all COMPA members hard copies of the journal, JPMSP presents its articles on the web. Initially the articles have been appearing there only abstracts, but later, following the year of publication; they have been posted in their entirety.

    If you are currently doing any interesting work about aspects of “Immigration and the Public Service”, please consider responding to this “Call for Manuscripts”. Feel free to forward this e-mail, or the “Call” itself, to other interested people, and also to contact either Chris Daniel or I with questions or comments.

    4) Shelter|Sanctuary|Status Coalition – OUT OF OUR SHELTERS! OUT OF OUR LIVES!

    OUT OF OUR SHELTERS! OUT OF OUR LIVES! was the message delivered to the Canada Border Services Agency on March 8th, International Women’s Day, by the 120 plus women and trans-folks who poured into the Toronto
    Rape Crisis Centre for an Emergency Assembly.

    The Assembly was called after it came to the attention of the Shelter | Sanctuary | Status campaign that in Feb. 2010 an Immigration Enforcement officer went into a women’s shelter, looking to deport a non-status migrant woman, and survivor of violence. Since this information has been made public, more and more women have started to break the silence.

    The Assembly agreed to begin a large-scale campaign insisting that Immigration Canada make women’s spaces and services OFF-LIMITS to Immigration Enforcement. We are writing today to ask for your support.
    Please read below, forward and act! Our actions can make immediate change.

    (Details of the assembly can be found at Here is what the Toronto Star had to say: )

    The gathering of over a hundred women, with support from hundreds of others calls for:

    This FRIDAY, March 12:
    Phone or Email Reg Williams, Director of Immigration Enforcement in Toronto
    Phone: 905.612.6070
    Email:, cc

    Insist that CBSA has no place in anti-violence against women organizations. A sample of what you can say or write can be found at:

    Forward this call to your friends, family and networks. The more people/organizations that they hear from, the stronger our message will be!

    2) If you are part of an organization that serves or supports migrant women, transpeople and children, or work in a shelter or anti-violence against women organization, invite a member of the SSS campaign to
    talk to you about Access Without Fear. We can work with you to ensure that your centre is safe and accessible for all people, regardless of immigration status.

    3) Shelters and anti-VAW organizations across the city and across the country are signing on to a declaration demanding:
    -a moratorium on all deportations for women surviving violence
    -Immigration Enforcement stay out of shelters and anti-VAW spaces
    -women fighting back against violence be given immediate status

    The full declaration is available here:
    If you are working in the anti-VAW sector, work with residents and participants to get your organization to sign on to the declaration.

    4) Get involved with the SSS campaign. On March 19, come out to the SSS: Access Without Fear Forum for front-line workers and service providers to develop strategies aimed at ensuring access to essential
    services for people without full status. Register here:

    The Shelter|Sanctuary|Status Coalition is a growing movement of over 120 anti-Violence Against Women organizations that are working to create safe spaces for all women, regardless of immigration status.
