A call for proposal to the Longitudinal Immigration Database (IMDB) and the Extended Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Canada (LSIC-IMDB) /Data Pilot Projects has been released. 

The Longitudinal Immigration Database (IMDB) combines linked administrative immigration and tax data files. It is a comprehensive source of data on the socio-economic outcomes of the immigrant tax filer population in Canada.

The Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Canada (LSIC), an immigration panel survey, and tax data information from the Longitudinal Immigration Database (IMDB) have been combined to provide an extended analytical file (LSIC-IMDB). Topics covered in the survey include language proficiency, housing, education, foreign credential recognition, employment, health, values and attitudes, the development and use of social networks, income, and perceptions of settlement in Canada. Latest additional socio-economic outcomes are then provided from tax filing information.

Researchers are invited to submit proposals for consideration by December 22, 2017.
