Immigration and the Welfare State Revisited finds that despite recent policy initiatives to improve the economic prospects of immigrants, Canadian taxpayers still bear a heavy fiscal burden to support newcomers. Specifically, the study calculates that the difference between the tax payments of new immigrants and the value of government services they consume was about $5,329 per immigrant in 2014.
