    Abstract

    Les transferts de fonds " l'argent que les immigrants envoient aux membres de leur famille dans leur pays d'origine " sont maintenant au coeur des recherches sur le developpement et les immigrants. Toutefois, malgre cet interet, les recherches sur les caracteristiques des residents du Canada qui transferent des fonds a l'etranger demeurent tres limitees, surtout en raison de l'absence de donnees d'enquetes-menages. A plus grande echelle, les etudes sur les residents du Canada et d'autres pays qui transferent des fonds a l'etranger s'interessent souvent aux immigrants d'un ou deux pays d'origine seulement et n'offrent donc pas une perspective internationale large sur la question. La presente etude comble ces lacunes en utilisant l'Enquete longitudinale aupres des immigrants du Canada pour documenter l'incidence des transferts et les montants envoyes par les immigrants de divers pays. Au moyen d'un ensemble uniformise de concepts et de methodes, nous constatons que l'incidence des transferts dans la cohorte d'immigrants arrives en 2000 a 2001 varie de moins de 10 % a 60 % parmi les immigrants de differents pays, tandis que les montants annuels moyens envoyes varient d'environ 500 $ a pres de 3 000 $. Lorsque l'on examine les facteurs associes aux transferts de fonds, les caracteristiques financieres et familiales sont toujours importantes chez les immigrants de toutes les regions du monde. En revanche, d'autres facteurs, comme le sexe et le niveau de scolarite, sont associes aux transferts de fonds chez les immigrants de certaines regions seulement.
