Abstract

The number of immigrants working in regulated and unregulated occupations is unknown. A major contribution of this study is that we use Statistics Canada data to classify occupations, across provinces, into regulated and unregulated categories and then to examine the covariates of membership in a regulated occupation. In aggregate, immigrants are not less likely to work in a regulated occupation. Immigrants educated in Asia prove to be much less likely to secure access to a regulated occupation than either the native-born or other immigrants.
