Countries and international organizations one by one are having problems of migration flows regulation. The migration policy of a country has an important role in integration and adaptation of immigrants. Migration policies of the European Union and Canada take special place among migration policies of other countries due to their uniqueness. The historical highlights of migration regulation in both the European Union and Canada is discussed; the general statistics of the migration situation, the social structure and demographic characteristics of the contemporary immigration to the European Union and Canada are considered; the role of integration and adaptation policies of the European Union and Canada into the adaptation process of contemporary immigrants using the Migrant Integration Policy Index data is determined. The obtained data show that Canada migration policy is considered one of the best in the world, while the European Union migration policy has a number of shortcomings due to the fact that it is regulated by both the European Union and its Member States, what slows the adaptation and integration of immigrants. However, all the measures taken by the authorities help immigrants feel included into the social life of their new country, which, as a result, positively influences their labour mobility and loyalty.
