Abstract
This study examined the labour market outcomes of the LSIC immigrant youth who completed after-migration post-secondary vocational education in Canada. Using the theoretical framework of discrimination theory and human capital theory, the study found that after four years of arrival, 1) Canadian work experience were positively correlated to immigrant youth’s employment earnings, 2) pre-migration education and the type of Canadian vocational school both had an effect on the average family annual income, 3) neither visible minority status nor official language ability affected immigrant youth’s employment earning, 4) immigrant youth who were very satisfied with their current jobs had higher employment earnings compared to others who were not very satisfied with their current jobs, 5) job satisfaction were associated with the utilization of qualifications and skills, and 6) visible minority immigrants were more likely to report underutilizations and to have lower job satisfaction.
