Greater tendency among newcomers to settle in peripheral municipalities: Study

A new study released by Statistics Canada on May 8, 2017 reveals changes in settlement patterns and social integration of the population with an immigrant background in the Toronto, Montréal and Vancouver metropolitan areas.

The highlights of the study are:

  • There is now a greater tendency among newcomers to settle in peripheral municipalities, most often those bordering a central municipality.
  • This suburbanization trend of immigrants changes the context of integration into Canadian society.
  • Traditionally, immigrants being dispersed in the peripheral municipalities was associated with greater integration into the host society. However, living on the outskirts of central municipalities does not necessarily mean that immigrants are more fully integrated than in the past.
  • The outskirts of central municipalities now have a higher proportion of immigrants than before, are relatively heterogeneous in terms of socio-economic status and have a similar urban concentration of the population with an immigrant background (immigrants and second generation populations).
