Settlement Services by World Area of Birth: IMDB-iCARE


This section focuses on the Settlement Services Received by World Area of Birth who were admitted into Canada in 2019 and filed their tax in 2020.

The Settlement Services Received by World Area of Birth data visual is developed using the Longitudinal Immigration Database that combines linked administrative immigration and tax data files. It is a comprehensive source of data on the socio-economic outcomes of the immigrant taxfiler population in Canada. In partnership with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and the national network of Local Immigration Partnerships (LIP), the Community Data Program has acquired a set of data tables tracking the mobility and economic outcomes of Canada’s newcomer population over several years.

IRCC’s Settlement Program for Newcomers

The Settlement Program: IRCC funded Settlement Program assists immigrants and refugees in overcoming barriers specific to the newcomer experience, such as a lack of official language skills and limited knowledge of Canada, so that they can participate in social, cultural, civic and economic life.

Eligible services include needs and assets assessments and reassessments, the development of personalized settlement plans, and referrals to IRCC-funded and other settlement services.
