    Description:

    This work is an updated version of a study published under the same title following the population censuses of 1991 and 1996. The text and tables have been adapted to reflect the more complete data from the 2001 Census, in which the usual questions on knowledge of languages, mother tongue, and language spoken 'most often' at home are supplemented by a question on languages spoken 'regularly' at home , and a two-part question on language use at work, that is, the language used 'most often,' and other languages used 'regularly,' in the workplace. This enrichment of the content has allowed us to expand our analysis while remaining true to the initial goal of presenting in a straightfoward manner basic statistics on the country's demolinguistic reality.

  • Articles and reports: 21-006-X2004004
    Description:

    Immigrants make up a much smaller portion of the population in rural regions than in urban areas. Recent immigrants are even less likely to be found in rural regions. However, according to this bulletin, immigrants living in rural regions had higher levels of education in 1996, a higher rate of employment, and were more likely to work in professional services.

  • Table: 97F0012X2001007
    Description:

    This table is part of the topic "Canada's Workforce: Paid Work," which presents 2001 Census data on the paid work of the Canadian workforce, including detailed industry and occupation data, class of worker and work activity during the reference year. Labour market information is available for small areas and small population groups.

    These data are used by governments, businesses, labour unions and others to analyze labour market conditions throughout the country. For small areas, the census is useful in allowing for comparisons of labour market structure and performance between areas. Similarly, for small population groups, such as visible minorities, immigrants and language groups, the census allows the assessment of the occupational structure and labour market status and integration of these groups compared with the population as a whole. The census is also the only source of data covering the entire labour market, including Indian reserves, overseas households, and all provinces and territories. Given the size of the census sample, this level of industry and occupation detail is reliable at very detailed levels of geography.

    This table can be found in Topic Bundle: Canada's Workforce: Paid Work, 2001 Census, Catalogue No. 97F0012XCB2001000.

    It is also possible to subscribe to all the day-of-release bundles. For more information refer to Catalogue No. 97F0023XCB.

Data on the socio-economic characteristics of these populations will be available at a later date. The following concepts related to immigration and citizenship are available from the 2001 Census: (1) birthplace of respondent (including province or territory of birth), (2) country of citizenship, (3) immigrant status, (4) period or year of immigration, and (5) age at immigration. In addition, for the first time since the 1971 Census, the census asked a question on the birthplace of parents. Responses to this question can be used to assess the socio-economic conditions of second-generation Canadians (that is, the Canadian-born children of foreign-born parents).
