Strengthen your business strategy with the latest data on new residents

The NewToCanada dataset captures Canadian immigration trends by country and region of origin.

Available at the dissemination area level, users can quantify permanent and non-permanent residents, discover what country residents are coming from and identify where in Canada they are settling. The data are available via flat file. Starting July 2022, data will be available within ENVISION, our SaaS software platform that allows users to create dashboards, reports and maps quickly and easily.

NewToCanada provides immigration estimates for a rolling twelve-month period. The data are updated quarterly to provide a new twelve-month view and to provide users with the ability to analyze immigration trends over time across different cities, regions or any user-defined geographies like trade areas.
