ABSTRACT
The paper focuses on the differential ability of foreigners to respond to Canadian labour market conditions by immigrating before and after the changes in Canadian immigration policy during the 1960s. Three policies are included: changed regulations in 1962 and 1967, the opening of new immigration offices, and the marriage of manpower and immigration. Immigration is subdivided by sending area: United Kingdom and France, Africa, Asia, South and Central America, and continental Europe excluding France.
