Points tests and gender effects, 1993–2003
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Chapter 5 considers the second case study – changes in skilled immigration points tests in Australia and Canada over the decade from 1993 to 2003. This Chapter argues that the points test adopted in Canada was more gender aware, an outcome informed by the engagement of diversity-seeking activists in the policy process and the establishment of a gender-based analysis unit within Citizenship Immigration Canada. The absence of gender considerations in Australia relates to the tight administrative control over the policy process by the immigration ministry and its reliance on regulatory instruments to achieve key policy goals.
