    Caractéristiques de santé des immigrants du Québec : comparaison avec les Canadiens de naissance - Série Enquête sur la santé dans les collectivités canadiennes

    This bulletin aims to compare the health of Québec immigrants with that of Canadian-born individuals residing in Québec. For this comparison, health-related characteristics have been selected: health status indicators, health service utilization indicators and lifestyle indicators. The analysis focuses on three distinct groups: recent immigrants, long-term immigrants and the Canadian-born. The reason for this distinction is that most of the studies mentioned indicate that over time, the health status of immigrants converges to that of the host population. The data presented are from the Canadian Community Health Survey, Cycle 3.1 (2005) and the analysis is essentially descriptive.
