Environics Institute research shows the first wave of Syrian refugees is doing remarkably well
Solid support for refugees has developed over the years. On fossil fuels, Alberta’s divisions can’t be ignored. And young Canadians are in bad shape.

Canada is breaking records on immigration
Michael Adams, president of the Environics Institute, says most Canadians view multiculturalism as an important symbol of what we aspire to as a society
