Manitoba Centre for Health Policy (MCHP) Report: The Diversity of Immigrants to Manitoba, Migration Dynamics and Basic Healthcare Service Use

Immigration is a key part of the Canadian social fabric. However, little is known about the characteristics of immigrants to Manitoba, as well as their social and health needs. The addition of the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) permanent resident database into the Manitoba Population Research Data Repository (Repository) at MCHP is the first step in addressing these gaps. This deliverable describes the linkage and the characteristics of international and interprovincial migrants. It also compares their basic primary care use and mortality with those of non-immigrants.
