A partir de l'Enquete sur la diversite ethnique de 2002, le present article examine les differences de groupe selon l'origine nationale en ce qui a trait au niveau de scolarite universitaire chez les enfants d'immigrants au Canada. Nous avons determine que les enfants de parents immigrants de la plupart des groupes de regions d'origine affichent des taux de diplomation universitaire plus eleves que les enfants de parents nes au Canada, partiellement en raison du niveau de scolarite plus eleve de leurs parents. Les enfants des immigrants de la Chine et de l'Inde atteignent notamment des niveaux de scolarite plus eleves que les enfants de parents nes au Canada. Le niveau de scolarite des parents est egalement important pour expliquer les taux relativement faibles de diplomation universitaire chez les Portugais.
