|Title:||The Effects of Migration Selectivity on Quebec's Population|
|Abstract:||<p> The issue of preserving Quebec's French culture has become paramount to those who fear its future existence. Maintaining a large proportion of the Canadian population is necessary in order for cultural preservation. However, Quebec is losing its share of the national population, despite the introduction of various policies to increase that proportion. </p> <p> The purpose of this research is to study the effects of migration selectivity, that is, the differences in migration behaviour with respect to personal attributes, on Quebec's population. The personal attributes considered are birth place, education level, marital status, mother tongue and gender. For each personal attribute, the net migration rate is determined for 10 different age groups. The net flow of people across the Quebec border will then be revealed. The characterization of the people who are migrating in and out of Quebec will be established and finally the ultimate effect the migration process has on the Quebec population will be discussed. </p>|
