Articles and reports: 85-002-X201800154911

Description:

Using data from the 2014 General Social Survey on Canadians' Safety (Victimization), this Juristat examines the self-reported experiences of violent victimization and discrimination, and the perceptions of safety, among Canadian immigrants. Experiences of violent victimization, including incidents of sexual assault, robbery and physical assault, are examined focusing on the characteristics of the incidents, whether they were reported to police and their impacts on the victims. In addition, experiences of discrimination among immigrants-including the types of discrimination and the context in which these incidents occurred-as well as immigrants' perceptions of safety from crime are also discussed.
