Quebec exodus highest since 1995: StatsCan

The Harper government yesterday introduced legislation requiring all voters - including veiled Muslim women - to show their faces before being allowed to cast ballots in federal elections.


Quebecers are leaving the province in numbers not seen for more than a decade, a trend some observers are blaming in part on a visceral public debate about immigrant accommodation.

According to Statistics Canada data, there has been a recent spike in migration to other provinces not seen since the 1995 Quebec referendum on sovereignty.


yet another Statistics Canada study compares the earnings of young men and women born in Canada to immigrant parents. The daughters of immigrants earn more than their peers with Canadian-born parents, the study found, but young men don't enjoy the same advantage.
Young women with immigrant parents are less likely to be married or have children, the study found, further boosting their earning power.
