Immigrant Earnings Differentials and Cohort Effects in Canada

Michael Abbott and Charles Beach

Working Paper from Economics Department, Queen's University

Abstract: This paper examines what has happened to immigrant earnings in Canada and test two alternative hypotheses of Chiswick and Borjas re changing immigrant earnings differentials. The paper use a 1973 survey containing detailed information on immigrant status, family background, and a direct measure of work experience. It is found that earning differentials of immigrant men have been widening since later 1960's. This is due to a steepening of earning profiles for native workers, a flattening of the years-since-migration earnings profile for immigrants, and a further flattening of the experience-earnings profile for immigrants.
