Immigrant and Refugee Women

Immigrant and Refugee Women

This Fact Sheet uses an intersectional analysis to look at the reality and experiences of immigrant and refugee women in Canada.

Overview

Only 4% of Canadians are not immigrants or descendents of immigrants. Only Aboriginal peoples are native to this land, and have lived and died here for 10,000 years. Thirty percent of Canadian women have themselves immigrated here from somewhere else and this population is growing four times faster than the population of Canadian-born women.
