Dr Melissa Kelly is  Senior Researcher, Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Migration and Integration at Ryerson University, Canada

International migration to Canada is largely an urban phenomenon, with most migrants settling in Canada’s largest centres such as Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal. Many smaller communities struggle to attract and even more so retain international migrants. This has caused policy makers, community stakeholders and researchers to consider what more can be done to improve immigration and integration outcomes in smaller centres.

This talk argues for the importance of a comparative place-based approach to further understanding of international migration to small and mid- sized centres. It outlines a new agenda for research being jointly developed by scholars at Ryerson University, the University of Otago, Monash University, and the University of Calgary.
