Atlantic Metropolis Centre
A Centre for Excellence for Research on Immigration, Integration and Cultural Diversity
The Metropolis Centre in Atlantic Canada is a consortium of academic researchers, government representatives, and non-governmental organizations dedicated to pursuing policy-relevant research related to immigration, population migrations, and cultural diversity. It pursues research agendas distinctive to the Atlantic region, as well as research programs addressing the national policy priorities of The Metropolis Project. The AMC is networked with four other Canadian Metropolis Centres of Excellence in Montreal, Toronto, the Prairies, and Vancouver, as well as with the international arm of the Metropolis Project, involving partnerships with researchers, policy makers and community organizations in over 20 countries.
