  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201900400001
    Description:

    This study, based on the linked Canadian Community Health Survey-Longitudinal Immigration database, offers a first look at the healthy immigrant effect among selected immigrants arriving under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act by comparing these results with those for their Canadian-born counterparts.

    Release date: 2019-04-17

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201100411589
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The objective of this article is to illustrate how combining data from several cycles of the Canadian Community Health Survey increases analytical power and yields a clearer picture of immigrant health by identifying more precise subgroups. Examples are presented to demonstrate how indicators of health status vary by birthplace and period of immigration.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    With data from the Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Canada, this analysis examines the relationship between self-reported official language proficiency and transitions to poor self-reported health during the first four years in the country.

  • Articles and reports: 82-622-X2011008
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The 1991 to 2001 census mortality follow-up study permits analysis of the healthy immigrant effect-the dominant hypothesis in immigrant health research-by world region of birth and for different areas of Canada. This hypothesis suggests that immigrants arrive with better health than the Canadian-born population, but that this health advantage tends to disappear over time. The results of this study provide overall support for this trend. However, similar to earlier research, the analysis of age-standardized mortality rates by world region of origin, period of immigration and residence reveals underlying differences that may not be evident when only the overall results are examined.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    In this paper, the Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Canada (LSIC) is used to examine how immigrants in the 2000-2001 landing cohort subjectively assess their life in Canada. The paper provides a useful complement to other studies of immigrant outcomes that often focus on employment, income or health. Four years after landing, about three-quarters of LSIC respondents said they were satisfied or very satisfied with their life in Canada, and a comparable proportion said their expectations of life in Canada had been met or exceeded. Nearly 9 out of 10 said that, if given the chance, they would make the same decision again to come to Canada. A broad range of demographic, social and economic characteristics are associated with subjective assessments. Positive assessments of life in Canada are less prevalent among individuals in their thirties and forties, and university graduates and principal applicants in the skilled worker admission category, than they are among other groups. While assessments of life in Canada are correlated with economic factors such as personal income, they are also correlated with social factors such as relationships with neighbours and perceptions of discrimination.
