The Transition Penalty: Unemployment Among Recent Immigrants to Canada (2003)

CLBC Commentary

This document gives us CLBC's commentary concerning the unemployment among recent immigrants to Canada.

The author informs us that Immigrants arrive with high expectations. They have heard good things about this country. Canada has a reputation as one of the worlds most developed, both in terms of its capacity to generate wealth, its provision of services, and its twin traditions of compassion and fairness. Indeed, the OECD consistently ranks Canada, its provinces and cities as among the best places in the world to live.

Upon arrival in Canada, immigrants experience a “transition period”: a period of time in which they must establish their self-sufficiency within the social structure. Finding a place to live, learning and adapting to new laws and regulations, and of critical significance – finding gainful employment . These are among the many dimensions that define a successful transition.
