Iain Reeve

Century Initiative
National Expert Panel


Iain Reeve is the Associate Director for the Immigration Knowledge Area at The Conference Board of Canada. He runs the Board’s immigration research agenda and manages the National Immigration Centre. Through Iain and his team’s work, the Conference Board is shaping public and policy debates on immigration in Canada and beyond.

Iain strongly believes in the power of quality research, evidence-based policy making, and bringing people together to solve wicked problems. Iain spent his career developing a skillset in service of these goals, most recently as a Policy Analyst at Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.

But what if you do not wish to talk immigration sector transformations? No problem, Iain is happy to talk all-things Canada. As a true pan-Canadian, he has lived in 6 different cities across the country. And when he is not travelling, you will find Iain spending time with his son, playing the guitar, or sampling Canada’s finest craft beers.

Iain holds a PhD in Political Science from Queen's University.
