Immigration Policy, Settlement Service, and Immigrant Mothers in Neoliberal Canada: A Feminist Analysis

Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)

Abstract

This paper critically reviews the current literature on immigration and settlement and provides a feminist analysis. It places a particular emphasis on immigrant mothers’ experience in order to reframe research on Canadian immigration policies and practice. Through discussing how the three waves of feminism led to the historical development of Canadian immigration policies and settlement practice, this paper examines Nancy Fraser’s (2008) thinking about the welfare state, “misframing,” and neoliberalism for rethinking the “gender neutral” literature on immigration policies and settlement services.
