Abstract

On a bien decrit la degradation des gains des immigrants au Canada en debut d'emploi au cours des trois dernieres decennies. La presente etude nous renseigne en outre sur les changements de situation des immigrants en portant sur l'inegalite et l'instabilite de leurs gains. L'analyse s'appuie sur un modele econometrique polyvalent qui decompose l'inegalite du revenu du travail en elements a court terme et a long terme. L'auteur non seulement dresse le profil d'inegalite et d'instabilite des diverses cohortes d'arrivee, mais degage aussi les facteurs sous-jacents d'inegalite, dont la scolarisation a l'etranger, le lieu de naissance et la capacite de parler francais ou anglais.
