Summary

This study explores changes and challenges arising out of new security and immigration laws in Canada, specifically the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA) and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA). While we trace the growing interface between security and immigration, more generally, we pay specific attention to the impact of these developments on women and men in immigrant and ethnic communities in Atlantic Canada. Multiple research instruments are used (from reviews of secondary literature, to town halls, focus groups, surveys and interviews) and the data are derived from work at six sites (Halifax, Charlottetown, Fredericton, Moncton, Saint John and St. John's) throughout the region.
