Why a Canadian Index?

The CIMI offers simplified rankings to showcase the realities of immigrant integration across Canada. These rankings are based on the outcome gap between immigrants and the Canadian-born population in each dimension. The smaller the gap between these two groups, the better the rank, and the closer we are to achieving parity, moving towards an inclusive society.
