    Description: The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted several issues among health care workers in Canada’s long-term care and seniors’ (LTCS) homes, including labour shortages, staff retention difficulties, overcrowding, and precarious working conditions. There is currently a lack of information on the health, well-being, and working conditions of health care workers in LTCS homes—many of them immigrants—and a limited understanding of the relationship between them. Using data from the 2021 Survey on Health Care Workers’ Experiences During the Pandemic, this paper examines differences between immigrant and non-immigrant workers’ health outcomes and precarious working conditions during the pandemic.

This study examines the overrepresentation of female COVID-19 deaths in Canada, with an immigration lens. This study also evaluates whether there is a sex difference in COVID-19 deaths by immigrant status in Canada and, if so, for which age groups and in which provinces or census metropolitan areas (CMAs).

    Description:

    In light of increasing Canadian immigration levels, an updated analysis of hospitalization patterns among immigrants to Canada, relative to the Canadian-born population, is needed to inform health care system policy and planning. Using immigrant landing administrative data linked to health care data, this descriptive study aims to examine hospitalization rates and leading causes of hospitalization, including mental health in immigrants and the Canadian-born population, stratified by sex and selected immigration characteristics.
