Indian Immigrants in Canada: The Shades of Economic Integration
The study develops a socio-economic profile of the Indo-Canadian diaspora by analyzing landing records, income tax data, and census micro data files. The study examines the key determinants of the success or failure of immigrants’ economic integration. The findings tell us that the combination of high education, age, and advanced language skills in official languages upon arrival improves the chances that Indian immigrants will earn high incomes over time.
