Immigrant and Refugee Women

Marika Morris and Jennifer Sinnott

Year of publication:


Using an intersectional analysis, this fact sheet looks at the reality and experiences of immigrant and refugee women in Canada.
Only 4% of Canadians are not immigrants or descendants 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.
