phenomenon of undeniable magnitude. The influence of migration on the =
dynamics of contemporary societies, on their internal policies, their =
cultural adjustments and their external relationships, cannot but =
continue and increase throughout the present century. Canada, as a =
traditional country of immigration, has been allotted a vanguard =
position in the management of this new kind of social complexity. But =
this has by no means been a one-way process. The self-perception of =
Canadian society, its identity, cultural habits and political =
institutions, have evolved and adapted to the changing circumstances in =
a process that has not always been easy and free of conflicts. The =
Spanish Association for Canadian Studies therefore puts forward the call =
