Many small and medium-sized cities in Canada are witnessing a decline in their populations. Accordingly, the idea of attracting new immigrants to such locations is a pressing political and policy issue. The research presented uses first wave findings from the Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Canada (LSIC) to construct an index that maps which cities new immigrants find most attractive. The study focuses on cities outside of Greater Vancouver in British Columbia.
