New figures show just how big Canada's immigrant wage gap is Even many second-generation immigrants earn much less than native-born workers. How speaking English impacts wages.   Over 80% of Canadian immigrant families live in major metropolitan areas like Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal. They are fairly evenly spread across the country, but British Columbia and Ontario are the only two provinces where first and second generation immigrants total over 50% of the population.
