Social assistance receipt among refugee claimants in Canada: CS11-0019/369E-PDF
evidence from linked administrative data files /
The study has been successful in linking approximately three-quarters of all refugee claimants to administrative files containing information on the annual receipt of social assistance (SA). Of these linked claimants, between 65% and 85% rely on SA shortly after opening their refugee claim. Among those whose claims were still open after four years, some 25% to 40% were collecting SA. This figure is well above the Canadian average of about 8%.
