Summary of Short-, medium-, and long-term employment-related outcomes of resettled refugees

The authors investigate the short-, medium- and long-term employment-related outcomes of resettled refugees from three admission programmes in Canada. After explaining the recent research on refugee economic integration, the authors analyze the 2019 version of the Longitudinal Immigration Database (IMDB) to compare the short- to long-term labour market outcomes of privately sponsored refugees (PSRs) and government-assisted refugees (GARs) and Blended Visa Office-Referred Refugees (BVORs).
