Mireille Paquet studies public policies for immigrant selection and immigrant integration in Canada and in other traditional immigrant-receiving societies.  Her current work  – funded by the SSHRC and by the FQRSC   –  focuses on the governance of immigration and integration policies in federal regimes (Canada, United States and Australia), with a specific attention to the activism and activities of subnational units. Dr. Paquet is also conducting research on public administration and immigration, and is especially interested in the role of public servant in the formulation of immigrant selection policies.  In the past, she has also conducted research on citizenship policy, citizenship tests and civic integration, immigration integration in Canada and on policies to attract and integrate newcomers in francophone minority communities. 

Mireille Paquet is a winner of the 2016/2017 Concordia University Research Award (Person and Society).


Dr. Paquet directs the Centre for Immigration Policy Evaluation (CIPE).


Mireille is interested in supervising graduate student research in the following areas: immigration policies and politics in Canada (provinces and federal), immigration public policy development and immigration policy implementation. Mireille est heureuse de superviser des étudiants en français et in English !
