The Substitutability of Foreign-Born Labour in Canadian-Production: Circa 1980
The impact of immigrant workers on the employment of Canadian-born workers is analyzed in 125 Canadian industries. A translog production function is estimated using data for the year 1980. The estimated cross-elasticities suggest no economywide displacement of Canadian-born workers by immigrants. However, displacement did occur in a portion of the Canadian economy. Results are compared with a similar U.S. study.
