"This book examines the creation of a new middle class responsible for the gentrification of inner city districts in six large Canadian cities.

"This book provides an examination of the wealthy migrants who left East Asia, notably Hong Kong and Taiwan, and migrated to Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United States, in the 1980s and 1990s. Through extensive interviewing and access to databases in Canada and Hong Kong over a 15 year period, Ley traces their migration career, from pre-migration, to arrival in Canada, to housing and business experiences in Vancouver, and for many, the continuing circular migration across the Pacific."--Jacket

Neighbourhood organizations and the welfare state by Shlomo Hasson( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to Hasson and Ley, the protest movements of the 1960s began a new era of urban politics evident today in the range and diversity of neighbourhood organizations. In this comparative study, the authors identify and explore four distinct types of neighbourhood organizations by pairing four neighbourhoods in Vancouver with four in Jerusalem. Each organizational type represents a different phase of the emergent welfare state and each is characterized by its distinctive ideologies, strategies, and relations with government. Hasson and Ley argue that political geography at the neighbourhood level is both diverse and complex, but that it does follow identifiable patterns. The four typologies presented are ratepayers' groups, paternalistic associations, protest organizations, and groups characterized by cooperative ventures with the state. Canada and Israel provide ideal comparative settings. Both are relatively new nations absorbing large immigrant populations and both are engaged in building welfare states within democratic/capitalist frameworks. At the same time, their obvious differences foreground the roles of culture, national history, and personal leadership in the formation of neighbourhood organizations. The authors draw on interviews and documentation to present a detailed case study of each neighbourhood organization, exploring its history, individual characteristics, impact on urban life, and interaction with the state. This rich and complex study offers basic reading for urbanists, community planners, and social and political scientists. The authors provide a detailed review of relevant literature and make a strong contribution to both theory and fieldwork in their discipline

Immigrant integration and religious transnationalism : the case of the 'Highway to Heaven' in Richmond, BC by Claire Dwyer( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper draws on a case study of religious institutions on No. 5 Road in Richmond, British Columbia to explore the role of religious institutions in the process of immigrant integration. Colloquially known as the 'Highway to Heaven', No. 5 Road includes over twenty religious communities on a three-kilometre stretch of road, their location the result of a planning policy for an 'Assembly District' in the Agricultural Land Reserve. Drawing on interviews conducted with twenty-two out of twenty-four of the religious institutions as well as with policymakers and staff at Richmond City Hall from 2010 to 2012, we argue that integration is a complex term, which can be interpreted in a variety of different ways. We identify a range of different ways in which the religious institutions along No. 5 Road might define their activities as contributing to the integration of immigrants, and we discuss a range of practices that support integration. However, we argue that immigrant integration was not the primary planning objective, nor was it the main theological purpose for religious congregations. Nonetheless, we conclude that policy makers could draw on the range of activities we explore to use the road as an educational resource to promote public conversation about the intricate relationships between faith, migration, and the contested meanings of 'integration.'
