Local Immigration Research Database

HIPC has created a custom database featuring research projects, reports and publications focusing on immigration to Hamilton, newcomers and immigrants in Hamilton, or newcomer integration in Hamilton. Search by keyword to find sources of interest to you.

This inventory includes a comprehensive listing of graduate student theses and scholarly journal articles, as well as unpublished papers and reports of interest to the research community.
