CIHS-Pathways to Prosperity Partnership video project

CIHS and Pathways to Prosperity (P2P) have  launched an on-line video interview series.  They which provides an oral history of immigration related by insiders involved in the political and policy decisions through to program development and operational logistics.

The first videos, Reflections from the Past, feature three one hour interviews and a group panel discussion with Michael Molloy, Raphael Girard, and Gerry Van Kessel.  They were Directors-General, responsible for refugee policy, at the federal immigration department over a thirty year period.  The interviews were conducted by Martha Nixon, a former Assistant Deputy Minister at Citizenship and Immigration Canada,  responsible for the Ministry’s operational arm during the 1990’s.  All four are well known to Bulletin readers.  Mike, Raph and Gerry offer their appraisals on the legislative and organizational development of Canada’s overseas and domestic approaches to refugee determination and refugee selection.
