Although immigrant children (32%) are more than twice as likely as non-immigrant children (15.4%) to live in low-income households, factors such as the opportunity to get a Canadian education and adopt English and French at the level of native speakers play a factor allowing immigrant children attain wages in adulthood similar to those of their Canadian-born peers. Among children admitted in economic immigrant families, 75% of those who were 20 years old in 2018 reported post-secondary education participation. This compares with 60% for children admitted in sponsored families, 51% for refugees and 56% for the overall population of the same age, in the same year.
