Current immigration policies overlook the unique challenges faced by immigrant children, resulting in higher dropout rates for those arriving in Canada as teenagers, according to a new C.D. Howe Institute report. In “Don’t Forget the Kids: How Immigrant Policy Can Help Immigrant’s Children,” authors Colin Busby and Miles Corak assert that various government policies do not take children’s prospects into account, including the Temporary Foreign Workers (TFW) Program, which, when used as a route to permanent immigration, needlessly separates children from their parents.
