Immigration and our local economies

Immigrants contribute to our economy by:

  • filling gaps in our labour force
  • paying taxes
  • spending money on goods, housing and transportation

To find out how immigrants affect our local economies, we look at how they support the job market and businesses in communities across Canada. We use current population and labour market trends in our analysis.

We’ll add more communities as they become available.
