Retour et reprise de migration chez les hommes en age de travailler


  • Aydemir, Abdurrahman
  • Robinson, Chris


L'immigration recente semble se caracteriser par la frequence des retours ou des reprises de migration, d'ou d'importantes consequences sur la contribution qu'apportent les immigrants a l'economie de leur pays d'accueil. A un certain nombre d'immigrants, il peut en couter tres peu pour s'etablir a nouveau dans le pays d'attache. L'absence de donnees longitudinales a empeche d'analyser outre mesure si la recente migration internationale a plus l'apparence de la migration interne, c'est a-dire d'une migration provisoire avec un retour possible si la transplantation s'est revelee une erreur. Un nouvel ensemble disponible de donnees longitudinales sur toute la population immigrante au Canada depuis 1980 nous donne la possibilite de repondre aux questions que pose la nouvelle migration. Les resultats indiquent qu'une forte proportion d'immigrants, plus particulierement les travailleurs qualifies et les entrepreneurs, sont hautement mobiles sur le plan international.
