To explore discourses pertaining to immigrants and refugees introduced by the Trudeau Liberal Government elected in 2015. This study employs qualitative methodology in the form of discourse analysis of 9 speeches made by the Liberal Party’s speakers. This study has two main objectives to first conduct a directive discourse analysis to analyze the presence of neoliberal discourses found within the Harper Conservative Government: economic burden, reinforcement of traditional gender roles, security threat within the discourse of the Liberal Party’s speakers. The second objective is to discover new ways of thinking about immigrant and refugees by conductive an exploitative discourse analysis.
