Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has launched its 2020 National Essay Challenge to support emerging scholars across Canadian universities in policy-relevant research. The Challenge is designed to generate evidence-based insights on IRCC policies and research gaps. It encourages graduate students to learn more about immigration research and policy, and it raises awareness about the availability of data and supporting resources.
The Challenge is open to all disciplines and welcomes empirical research papers related to IRCC’s mandate, using qualitative or quantitative methodologies. Up to 6 participants will be invited to present their essays as part of IRCC’s Research Matters Event series in Ottawa in June 2020.
For more information about the 2020 National Essay Challenge, please see the attached poster, which you can distribute among your faculty and graduate students.
Please note that if students are planning to complete statistical analysis using to use the Longitudinal Immigration Database (IMDB) or other relevant datasets for their paper, the deadline to submit a proposal to Statistics Canada’s Research Data Centres is approaching fast on November 6, 2019.
