Abstract

The purpose of this thesis was to provide an assessment of some possible implications of the 1967 Immigration Act and subsequent legislation on the distribution of occupation types for selected mother tongue groups. The Toronto and Windsor C.M.A's were selected as the study area of this study and the 1981 and 1986 Censuses were selected as the study period. In order to find out the implications of the 1967 Immigration Act and subsequent legislation, the occupational statistics of the following groups were studied: English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Punjabi and Hindi. The occupational data was analyzed using the Index of dissimilarity and Chi square computations. The results from these tests and the review of the literature was used to make a series of conclusions on the need, of certain mother tongue groups, for Equity hiring policies.Dept. of Geography.
