    Abstract

    This paper finds that there are significant differences in the probability of UI participation across ethnic groups. This is an aspect which has been overlooked in the Canadian literature. It also finds that whereas the probability of immigrants who came to Canada before 1975 receiving UI is often not significantly different from that of the British who came before 1966, this is not the case with those who arrived after 1975. Several ethnic groups are found to have a relatively high UI propensity.
