The Performance of Immigrants in the Canadian Labor Market
In this article, the authors examine the economic assimilation of immigrants to Canada. They provide new evidence on immigrants who arrived in the 1970s and document an increase in the dispersion of labor market outcomes across immigrants of different vintages over time. The authors' results confirm U.S. evidence of permanent differences across immigrant cohorts. What distinguishes the Canadian experience is small or negative rates of assimilation for most cohorts over the sample period. Finally, the authors test the overidentification of the assimilation process specified in previous studies and fail to reject the usual cohort fixed-effect specification.
