A favourable movement in the earnings of immigrants can be either immediate or gradual. An immigrant has the possibility of gaining immediate profits when he/she is into a job according to his/her skills. Immediate gains are more expected in metropolitan areas where productive and specialized firms exist. Productive firms have the capability to pay higher compensation to their employees and specialized firms require skilled workforce which provides opportunity to skilled immigrants to find jobs appropriate as per their skills. On the other hand, gains can also be gradual in case where the employer is not able to judge the real skills of the workers or the workers are not able to find a suitable job. This makes the workers getting engaged in certain unsuitable jobs before they find a right one. This generates a situation of gradual movement in the earnings of an employee.
The lack of integration of immigrants of Quebec to the culture of Quebec leads to lower earnings of the immigrants in comparison to the earnings of immigrants in Toronto. Moreover the immigration policy of Quebec is different from the ROC. Quebec is expected to be the province that provides the maximum economic benefit to the country on the contrary the province’s performance has been poor. Considering this factor, successful integration of immigrants is much more necessary in Quebec rather than in the rest of the Canada. A main reason for the lower earnings of immigrants in Quebec when compared to the immigrants earnings in Toronto is the difference in the numbers of immigrants settling down in both the regions. Montreal is not as effective as Toronto in attracting immigrants from different countries, the reason for which needs to be identified so that it can transform its policies as required.
