Immigration has lowered wages in Canada: StatsCan
Excerpt: In 2001, about four in 10 people with more than an undergraduate degree were immigrants in Canada compared to about one in five in the United States, says the study, which was released Friday. The StatsCan study found having more highly-skilled workers in Canada has curtailed earnings growth for the most educated Canadian workers relative to the least-educated. In the U.S., the opposite has happened. Immigrants have depressed the earnings of low-paid Americans and further widened the gap between low and high income earners. Experts suggest Canada has a higher proportion of educated immigrants because the country's immigration policy focuses on recruiting high-skilled workers.
