The Effect of Literacy on Immigrant Earnings (2004)

Using data on literacy test scores and standard labour market variables, the authors of this document try to understand why immigrants earn less than their Canadian-born counterparts.

The authors found that those born in Canada score higher on literacy tests than do immigrants. However, both immigrants and those born in Canada appear to get the same economic return on their literacy skills.
