The Feminization of Temporary Workers: The Canadian Case

Date

1987

Authors

Monica Boyd

Abstract

An examination of the F component of the temporary worker flows in Canada. Unpublished data from Employment & Immigration Canada indicate that Fs represent 40% of the workers granted Employment Authorizations between 1979 & 1985 & that they predominate in the labor component of the temporary worker flow. Sex & type of employment authorizations intersect to create important distinctions among temporary workers & univariate tabulations oversimplify the Canadian Employment Authorization program's current situation. Recent studies which argue for sex-specific analysis of migration flows are supported. 6 Tables, 28 References. AA
