Many Canadians worry about the implications for social cohesion and economic growth as the number of immigrants to Canada continues to grow. What would you say? is a discussion about the integration of newcomers into the Canadian social, economic and political landscape.


Robin Higham sets eight friends in a coffee shop where they test-drive remarks that they would make if they were asked to be the guest speaker at a Canadian citizenship ceremony. They themselves represent both newcomers and long-established Canadians. Rather than obsess over host community obligations, each speaker unapologetically outlines what he or she thinks newcomers themselves need to understand about settling here.

To give you a flavour of Robin’s book, take a look at the Preface and at the Introduction..
