Statistics Canada introduced a labour market analysis that highlights some improvement in economic outcomes from ‘two-step’ immigrations – temporary residents transitioning to permanent residency. The analysis compares the employment rate and earnings of immigrant and Canadian-born workers throughout the 2000s and 2010s which is based on statistics from the censuses from 2001 to 2016 and data from the Labor Force Survey from 2015 to 2019. According to the analysis, over the 2000-to-2019 period, the employment rate for new and recent immigrants grew faster than for Canadian-born people which means the economic gap between the two groups has been improving in recent years.
