Over the past few years, MIPEX has become a tool increasingly utilised by national governments looking to evaluate their migration integration policies. This was recently exemplified by the governments of Canada and Finland.
With regard to Canada, the government's "Settlement Outcomes Highlights Report" reveals how MIPEX was used to identify the current strengths and weaknesses of migrant integration within Canada. Specifically, it reported on Canada's strong performance in terms of rapid labour market integration, non-discrimination and sense of belonging, while recognising that more still needs to be done in areas such as education.
For Finland, it is a similar story. In a recent Finnish government report, it was shown how MIPEX is likewise utilised to identify areas of success and areas in need of improvement. Here, the government noted Finland's encouraging results in terms of 'labour market mobility, education, political participation, permanent residence and access to nationality', while also identifying areas of improvement, such as labour market integration.
