A CDP team went over our numerous 2016 Census tables on Canada's immigrant population. A member of Statistics Canada's Longitudinal Immigration Database group introduced the recently-acquired community-level IMDB tables that allow mobility and outcomes of newcomers to be tracked over several years using taxfiler records.
