The Impacts of Employment on Settlement

Despite having considerable skills, immigrants in Canada struggle with long periods of unemployment, underemployment, and precarious employment during their settlement process. The employment challenges that immigrants experience in the Canadian labour market affect all aspects of their settlement lives including income level, housing situations, family relationships, social networks, physical health, mental health, sense of self, personal identities, and others (Wilson, Sakamoto, & Chin, 2017).

  • Sense of Self
