Do Immigrants who land in Atlantic Canada with family stay?
Authors: Howard Ramos and Mark Bennet
Often overlooked in the analysis of immigrant retention is the role that family members play as anchors in a community. The need to understand the role of the family in the immigration experience is considered critical by service providers and researchers, however, little empirical work has analyzed the impact of family on it. Using the 2016 release of the IMDB (Longitudinal Immigrant Database) this report shows that economic immigrant taxfilers in Atlantic Canadian provinces that land with family are more likely to stay.
