Design and validation of a survey instrument to assess the attraction, retention, and integration of official language minority immigrants in Canada: Ci4-152/2016E-PDF

"The goal of this project was to design, implement and analyze a pilot survey of recent Official Language Minority Immigrants in Canada, with the ultimate aim of providing a valid and reliable survey instrument that can be used to enhance understanding of the settlement and integration experiences of Official Language Minority Immigrants (OLMIs) in Canada, and the factors that drive their attraction, retention, and integration. To this end, a pilot survey was designed and administered to 150 recent Official Language Minority Immigrants across the country using computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI). The survey was designed to include the following key modules, some of which are specific to Official Language Minority Immigrants and some of which apply to immigrants in general: attraction, retention, and mobility factors that may influence Official Language Minority Immigrants; availability, access to, and satisfaction with French institutions, services, and activities in communities outside of Quebec, and with English institutions, services, and activities in communities in Quebec; language practices and retention; social and cultural integration; economic integration; well-being; and demographics"--Executive summary, p. v.
