Canada Research Chair in Economic Inclusion, Employment and Entrepreneurship of Canada’s Immigrants and Associate Professor of Human Resource Management and Organizational Behaviour, Ted Rogers School of Management

Rupa Banerjee is the Canada Research Chair in Economic Inclusion, Employment and Entrepreneurship of Canada’s Immigrants and an Associate Professor of Human Resource Management and Organizational Behaviour at the Ted Rogers School of Management. Rupa examines the employment experiences of immigrants and racialized Canadians, both from the perspective of highly skilled immigrants and temporary foreign workers, in order to uncover the factors that pose barriers for immigrants and the potential avenues to overcome their disadvantage. Her recent studies examine the labour market experiences of immigrants. Currently, Rupa is working on a five-year study, funded by a SSHRC Insight Grant, examining recent changes in skilled immigrant selection policy to uncover how these changes affect employers and newly arrived immigrants, and their ability to integrate into Canadian society. In another recent project, funded by the CIHR, she collaborated with the largest immigrant service provider in Toronto to develop a digital tool to improve integration for newcomers.
