Study Area

Welcome to the Vancouver Centre of Excellence for Research on Immigration and Integration in the Metropolis (RIIM) atlas of immigration and urban change in Greater Vancouver.  This atlas is part of a series of publications designed to show how immigration is helping shape the future of Greater Vancouver.  In it we explore, through a series of charts, graphs, and maps, the changing social geography of immigration in the metropolitan region.  Readers who wish to study these issues in more detail are encouraged to download and read RIIM Working Paper #98-16.  For a description of the role of RIIM as a research centre intended to provide information to the public and, especially, to people working in institutions shaping Canadian immigration policy, please see the general information page on the RIIM website.
