Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Canada: Process, progress and prospects

This article is based on the results from the first wave of interviews conducted for the Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Canada (LSIC), which was designed to study the process by which new immigrants adapt to Canadian society. The article focuses on the initial experience of newcomers. A few key areas of settlement are explored: immigrants’ destination choice and the reason for that choice; initial experiences in finding suitable housing, accessing health care services, pursuing further training and entering the labour force; and difficulties encountered during the settlement process.
