On September 15, 2021, Statistics Canada released a study comparing the rate of all-cause hospitalization among immigrants with that of their Canadian-born counterparts.
Despite the heterogeneity in hospitalization rates within the immigrant population, the results demonstrated a healthy immigrant effect, since immigrants typically arrive in good health.
According to the report, the overall age-standardized hospitalization rates among immigrants were lower than those of the Canadian-born population.
Hospitalization rates were lowest in the economic class, followed by the family class and then refugees.
