The Conference Board of Canada is the country’s immigration research hub. Relying on in-house demographic, economic, and fiscal models, we have the unique ability to quantify the challenges associated with an aging demographic and evaluate policy assumptions around immigration and immigrants’ success in the labour market. Our work helps strengthen Canada’s immigration system.
Iain Reeve is the Associate Director for the Immigration Knowledge Area at The Conference Board of Canada. He runs the Board’s immigration research agenda and manages the National Immigration Centre. Through Iain and his team’s work, the Conference Board is shaping public and policy debates on immigration in Canada and beyond.
