Canadians experienced in the field of immigration and representing the academic community, government, and community-based organizations discussed major policy issues regarding the Canadian Federal Green Paper on Immigration Policy and the possibility of a national council on immigration and migration at the conference. A variety of topics were considered and condensations of each discussion and who was involved are presented in the 41-page report for the following areas: immigration and population growth, immigration and provincial responsibilities, immigrants and cities, immigration and Francophone Canada, refugee policy, the case for a National Immigration and Migration Council, Canada's selection policy, immigration and the labor force, the illegal immigrant, the brain drain, Canada as a multiracial society, and immigration policy forum. The text is in both French and English, with tables supplementing the discussions. A proposal to create a National Immigration and Migration Council is appended, along with the conference program and a list of participants. It is stated that more can be done to facilitate the economic and social integration of immigrants into Canadian society, with institutions cooperating in their integration and the alleviation of discrimination.
