Immigration's Impact, Immigrants' Outcomes: New Results Using Business and Social Data
Organized by the Quebec Interuniversity Center for Social Statistics and the Productivity Partnership, in collaboration with the Canadian Research Data Centre Network, HEC Montréal and CIRANO
In Canada, more than 20% of the population is composed of immigrants, and this proportion continues to grow. In the current context of globalization and new migratory trends, the integration of immigrants into the host society and into the labor market raises important issues. In a recent report, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) encourages developed countries to resort to immigrant workers to counter the potential economic slowdowns stemming from the aging of the population.
New datasets help to deepen our understanding of the impacts of immigration and the mechanisms leading to successful integration. This new data also makes it possible to examine more specific questions such as the links between immigration and demographic changes or the impact of immigration on firms' productivity.
The international conference "Impact of Immigration, Implications for Immigrants: New Results Using Business and Social Data" brought together Quebec and Canadian researchers specializing in these new data as well as internationally recognized experts in this field. David Card (University of California) and Richard Alba (City University of New York) were among the guest speakers.
