There is limited research that examines the employment-related geographical mobility (E-RGM) of journeypersons in the construction industry. Such an investigation is important because migration can help reduce labour shortages and surpluses and allow journeypersons to obtain gainful employment. In this paper we investigate the E-RGM of construction...

Rising housing costs pose challenges for Canadians trying to form independent households, particularly for those that wish to own their home rather than rent it. This is especially true for immigrants, who have had lower homeownership rates than the Canadian-born since the 1980s. This paper investigates the impacts of housing affordability and the...
Article
Immigration policies in Canada draw from the human capital model. Yet, many individuals admitted under this policy face barriers to actualizing their capital in the Canadian labour market. As a result, in the face of economic struggle, newcomers might choose alternative pathways to attaining employment, drawing both resources and opportunities from...

This paper explores some of the implications that administrative data, defined as data initially collected for purposes other than research, will have for Sociology. Although administrative data are “found” rather than “made” and, in turn, pose several challenges, we argue that the potential of these data warrant the investment, and may lead to a n...

In this article, we employ a multinomial logistic regression model to determine which factors predict middle- and upper income class belonging among Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. We examine the impact of identity, education, occupation, and urbanization on income status. The positive impact of higher education is captured by the model; howe...
Article
The subjective life satisfaction of individuals reveals valuable information about the overall well-being of a society. Furthermore, large international migration flows have led to the importance of studying the life satisfaction of immigrants within host countries, including Canada. This study uses secondary data from the 2013 Canadian General Soc...
Article
This article studies the link between observed demographic changes and Canadian inter-provincial migration declines. Alongside recent changes in age composition, educational attainment, marital trends, and immigration, Canadian internal migration has widely been in decline. In this context, our project investigates the demographic determinants of C...
Article
Introduction: Bladder cancer (BC) is the fifth most prevalent cancer in Canada, with 9000 Canadians diagnosed each year.1 While smoking is the most important risk factor, environmental and occupational carcinogens have been found to significantly contribute to BC rates.2 As Canada is highly reliant on natural resource industries, this study seeks...
Article

Background Testis cancer (TC) patients are young with excellent cancer prognosis. Hence, the risk of late-onset treatment-related morbidity and mortality is of concern due to longer survival after treatment. Objective We set to characterize long-term survival of TC patients through a Canadian population dataset. Design, setting, and participants...
Article
Construction is an important employer in all developed countries, which bolsters the local and global economy. The construction industry is responsible for creating structure that improve productivity and quality of life not only in Canada but also in other developed and developing countries. Although considerable research exists on important facet...
Article
In recent years, Canada has been not only welcoming growing numbers of temporary foreign workers (TFWs), but also, increasingly, creating pathways that allow workers and their families to become permanent residents. In this paper, we use a series of unique longitudinal files to study the factors that predict a TFW’s transition to permanence. We fin...

Introduction: The Canadian Kidney Cancer information system (CKCis) has prospectively collected data on patients with renal tumors since January 1, 2011 from 16 sites within 14 academic centers in six provinces. Canadian kidney cancer experts have used CKCis data to address several research questions. The goal of this study was to determine if the...
Article
Upon migrating to a new country, immigrants will often turn to their ethnic communities for support, forming bonding social ties in the process. However, there are also those who form bridging ties by reaching outside of one’s immediate ethnic group. The social position occupied by individuals in society is maintained and reproduced by the cultural...
Article
Considerable research focuses on why internal migration rates are declining across most of the Western world. Several studies also look at why people are less likely to change jobs than they were in the past. In this paper, we look at the prospect of declining economic returns as an explanation for the joint decline in both phenomena in Canada. We...

... Une récente étude de cohorte n'a noté aucune hausse de la mortalité par cancer de la prostate chez les hommes noirs au Canada après ajustement pour tenir compte de différences non biologiques, telles que le statut socioéconomique et l'accès aux soins de santé 33 . Cette observation s'oppose à celles d'études antérieures selon lesquelles des différences génétiques pouvaient être une cause majeure du risque élevé de cancer de la prostate chez les hommes noirs 19,20 . ...
... Internal migration decline has therefore not gone away and its importance as a topic for research is reinforced by the experience of other 'decline countries' such as Canada (White & Haan, 2021). However, the complexity of the US experience and the diversity of the national case studies in our book indicate the continued need to extend the national evidence base in width and in depth to understand more about how trends differ between countries that vary in their levels of address changing. ...
... However, in prior publications, we have shown that when surveillance relapse is managed with regional therapies when appropriate (ie, radiation for seminoma relapse and RPLND for NSGCT relapse), the total treatment burden is no worse than adjuvant strategies [8,15]. To this end, complications of surgery, radiation, and long-term side effects of adjuvant chemotherapy (cardiotoxicity and secondary neoplasms) are additionally avoided [28]. In the current study, we observed no increased burden of disease or its treatment at relapse with reduced surveillance intensity. ...
... Attention to the disruptions, multiple destinations and multiple channels of diversified high-mobility migration within Asia has revealed the experiences of a wide range of temporary migrants, such as professional and managerial elites (Kawashima, 2018;Khoo et al., 2009;Wang, 2020), contract workers (Haan et al., 2020;Sarkar, 2017;Tsuda, 1999), undocumented migrants, student migrants (Shen, 2009;Xiang and Shen, 2009), marriage migrants, retirement or lifestyle migrants (Cai and Su, 2020;Wang et al., 2020) and frequent flyers (Baas, 2017). The implication of these phenomena of temporary migration in Asia is that the study of contemporary migration should not be limited to the form and patterns of permanent rupture, uprooting and local settlement from a transnational perspective. ...
... As a result, Indigenous women make less money not only compared to non-Indigenous workers but also compared to Indigenous men (AANDC 2008). A recent study by Haan et al. (2020) found gender gaps in earnings among Indigenous workers in professional jobs and in the management of companies and enterprises. Despite Indigenous women's higher education, they remain marginalized in knowledge industries (Haan et al. 2020). ...
... Median [95% confidence interval (CI)] overall survival (OS) from mRCC diagnosis was 42 months (95% CI: 32-62) for patients with asymptomatic BM, and 39 months (95% CI: 29-48) with symptomatic BM (p = 0.10). OS from time of BM diagnosis was 28 months (95% CI: for the asymptomatic BM group, as compared to 13 months (95% CI: [10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21] in the symptomatic BM group (p = 0.04). ...
... Thus, the results further indicate that improvement in migrants' social capital makes the provision of developmental public service more effective. On the contrary, no obvious effect is found in equity services, and it infers that social capital improves migrants' experience by amending sources of information (Chuatico & Haan, 2022). However, information asymmetry is rare in terms of medical care, insurance, and housing, and the factory or company migrants working for, play a leading role in providing this service. ...
... Among the general English speaking population in Canada migration rates have been declining since the 1970s (Haan & Cardoso, 2020;Rheault, 2019). In fact, studies confirm that construction industry journeypersons are no more likely to migrate than those with other types of postsecondary credentials (Statistics Canada, 2014). ...
