Skilled Workers Highest Earners: Study
Skilled workers earn more in Canada than other immigrant categories
A new Queen’s University study has found that of all of the types of immigrants who come to Canada, skilled workers are the highest earners. The study, called Immigrant Earnings Differences Across Admission Categories and Landing Cohorts in Canada was conducted by Queen’s University and looked at skilled workers, economic immigrants, refugees and family class immigrants during 1982, 1988 and 1994.
According to the study, “The ten-year average of median earnings levels of skill-assessed economic immigrants exceeded the average median earnings levels for all immigrants by 30 to 37 per cent across the [three years studied] for men and by 36 to 56 per cent for women.”
The same study suggested that Citizenship and Immigration focus more on economic immigrants as opposed to the other categories.

Spectacular experience. Completely smooth process, they were able to answer any of my questions any time and I had peace of mind throughout the application time, which was invaluable. I have recommended them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications, and will continue to do so. Worth every penny.
Here, I would like to say thank you so very much for your kind support on extension my visit visa. I am touched and beyond words, I am grateful and thankful for your always help and cooperation. Have a wonderful day.
Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
