Non-permanent residents in Alberta

Description

Non-permanent residents are comprised of non-Canadians who have claimed refugee status or who hold a work or study permit, and the dependents who reside with them. Alberta has experienced a large inflow of net non-permanent residents in 2008 when compared to previous years. Higher numbers of foreign workers, in response to labor shortages, contributed to this increase. This issue in the Demographic Spotlight series looks at characteristics of non-permanent residents coming to Alberta, including their country of origin and destination, and economic sector of employment.
