The immigrant mobility gap & impact on 2nd generation children

The Globe and Mail published today a story on Immigrants Face Growing Mobility Gap, by their immigration reporter, Marina Jiminez. In the story, Jiminez quotes historian Jack Jedwab, Association for Canadian Studies, who calls for a rethinking of the vertical mosaic in a report he wrote based on findings released last week by Statistics Canada. Jedwab’s report, The Changing Vertical Mosaic: Intergenerational Comparisons in Income on the Basis of Visible Minority Status in Canada, 2006 is listed on the ACS website, but the report is not (yet) posted.
