Determining the driving factors of migration and brain drain helps Iranian policy makers to prevent migration and brain drain. This study considers two models of migration and brain drain from Iran to Canada. Variables include the number of educated and non-educated migrants, real Iranian National Income, the number of university students, the number of newspapers and periodicals, regime changes and war, and the Canadian unemployment rate from 1970 to 2000. The results of applying a Vector Autoregressive approach support the notion that lagged values of brain drain and migration are major driving factors of migration and brain drain from Iran to Canada.
