The purpose of this report is to review research on the health determinants of health of Canadian immigrants and to discuss the implications of this research for policy makers. Specific attention is placed on reviewing evidence of the healthy immigrant effect. The healthy immigrant effect refers to the observation that immigrants are often in superior health to the native-born population when they first arrive in a new country, but lose this health advantage over time.--Abstract
