2016 Census of Canada. Immigrants

Description

The 2016 Census showed that over one in five residents of Alberta was an immigrant. Most immigrants in the province were from Asia and most were admitted under the economic category. One in four immigrated in the five years prior to the Census and the majority of these individuals were in the core working ages of 25 to 54 years. Alberta’s share of the national total is on the rise; the province was home to about one in ten immigrants overall, but 17% of most recent arrivals to Canada.
