Workshop on Macroeconomic Implications of Migration

Call for papers

The Bank of Canada and the Global Migration Center at the University of California Davis would like to invite you to submit a paper to the workshop on the Macroeconomic Implications of Migration that will take place in Ottawa on August 29-30, 2022. We aim at holding the conference in-person at the Bank of Canada’s head office (subject to change due to the pandemic).

  • The labor market impacts of (im)migration, their effects on firms, productivity, innovation, and the economy as a whole.
  • The response of migration to different economic shocks and policies.
  • The business-cycle behaviour of migration and its relation to monetary and fiscal policies.
  • The effect of migration on public finances.
  • The channels through which migration affects potential output and the neutral rate.

The keynote speakers for the workshop are:
