Alan B. Simmons’s Immigration and Canada: Global and Transnational Perspectives received the Nathan Keyfitz Book Prize, a biannual prize awarded by the Canadian Population Society. The prize is awarded to a scholar who has published a book on a topic of concern to Canadian demography and population studies. Published in 2010, Immigration and Canada presents an integrated critical perspective on Canadian immigration policies, main trends, and social, economic, and cultural impacts.

The Canadian Population Society is a scientific association that seeks to improve knowledge and understanding about the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of human population. Their book prize was established to honour Professor Nathan Keyfitz, a Canadian demographer and leading international scholar of mathematical demography.

Simmons is a Professor of Sociology at York University and has published extensively on issues of Canadian immigration, race and ethnicity, international migration, and refugee policy.
