Information About Second-Generation Canadians


A researcher is trying to find information on the amount of first-generation Canadians and their composition percentage of Canadian population as first generation immigrants. If possible, she would also like to see if we can find a percentage for Alberta and Edmonton (i.e. percentage of people in Alberta who are 1st generation Canadian and percentage of people in Edmonton who are first generation Canadian).

In the 2006 Canadian census, she found there were 24% of Canada's population is 15+ years of age.

Are there any resources or any places that would be able to shed some light on this question?

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.


The following 2006 Census topic based tabulation may be of interest to the researcher. The first can provide statistics on generation status for Canada and the provinces and the second one includes statistics for Edmonton.

Generation Status (4), Age Groups (9) and Sex (3) for the Population 15 Years and Over of Canada, Provinces and Territories, 1971, 2001 and 2006 Censuses - 20% Sample Data (97-557-XCB2006010),97154&S=0&SHOWALL=0&SUB=725&Temporal=2006&THEME=72&VID=0&VNAMEE=&VNAMEF=&D1=0&D2=0&D3=0&D4=0&D5=0&D6=0

Place of Birth of Father (35), Place of Birth of Mother (35) and Generation Status (4) for the Population 15 Years and Over of Canada, Provinces, Territories, Census Metropolitan Areas and Census Agglomerations, 2006 Census - 20% Sample Data (97-557-XCB2006009),97154&S=0&SHOWALL=0&SUB=725&Temporal=2006&THEME=72&VID=0&VNAMEE=&VNAMEF=&D1=0&D2=0&D3=0&D4=0&D5=0&D6=0

I located them through the following steps: --> clicked on Census on top right--> clicked on Data products on left --> clicked on Topic-based tabulations --> clicked on Immigration and citizenship --> clicked on Generation status

Additional 2006 Census tables on generation status are available at,97154&S=0&SHOWALL=0&SUB=725&Temporal=2006&THEME=72&VID=0&VNAMEE=&VNAMEF=

I hope that this is helpful.
