Presents an overview of Canadian research on subjects related to immigration health, the main scan of bibliographic research completed August-October 1998 with some recommended materials added at the beginning of 1999. Includes federal government-funded research and published academic research. Addresses a wide range of issues grouped within Health Canada’s three main areas of interest: promotion of population health; health system support and renewal; and, management of risks to health. Identified a number of main themes and remaining gaps in immigration health research, among them: a predominance of material on health determinants; significant gaps in knowledge evidence for considering the immigration experience itself as a health determinant; a need for more gender analysis in immigration health research; a need for an immigration perspective on management of risks to health; and, a need for a focus on immigrant sub-populations. Suggests, based on this review, research syntheses, in-depth literature reviews and new immigration health research topics. Includes appendices documenting search terms, listing governmental and non-governmental organizations contacted, and providing an annotated list of health-related research undertaken by the Metropolis Centres of Excellence. Constitutes part of Health Canada’s contribution to the Metropolis project.
