Title: Toronto: «The World in a City»
Authors: Teixeira, José Carlos
Issue Date: 2009
Publisher: OBSERVARE. Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa
Abstract: Canada is a country whose history and urban areas have been critically shaped by immigration. Since the end of the Second World War, significant changes in both immigration policies and global migration patterns have contributed to the transformation of major urban areas in Canada. Immigrants in general seem to prefer settling in urban centres, and in this “new age of migration” Toronto – Canada's largest city and its primary “port of entry” for immigrants – has witnessed radical changes in its social, economic and political landscapes, becoming a “city of nations” and among the most multicultural spaces in North America and in the world.
