Cada cliente que contrata una consulta con Ziegler Immigration debe completar una planilla de información adicional. Una de las preguntas que figuran allí dice “¿Por qué querés venir a Canadá?”

Todos (absolutamente el 100%) de las respuestas de matrimonios o parejas con hijos incluye entre sus razones “Porque quiero un mejor futuro para mis hijos”. Los entiendo. Yo también tuve eso en mente al momento de la decisión.

Si bien la frase “Quiero que mis hijos tengan un mejor futuro” puede sonar como una mera expresión de deseos, un estudio del Gobierno Canadiense muestra que efectivamente tus sacrificios en Canadá van a repercutir mucho mejor en ellos que en ti mismo. Sobre ese estudio te quiero contar en la nota de hoy.

“A success to be preserved”

Un reporte interno del Ministerio de Inmirgación y Ciduadanía de Canadá obtenido por la empresa Lexbase (quienes amablemente nos autorizaron la difusión) evalúa el desempeño del sistema migratorio canadiense en el largo plazo enfocándose en los resultados a nivel económicos y de educación de los hijos de inmigrantes (la llamada “segunda generación de inmigrantes”: tus hijos llegados contigo o nacidos aquí)

Les comparto algunos extractos de este estudio “en su idioma original” (los resaltados son míos):

“Canada fortunately has among the best educational and economic outcomes for the children of immigrants in the western world. This success sets Canada apart from most European nations, and to some extent, the U.S. But there is tremendous variation by country of origin. The children of immigrants from many Asian countries such as China and India register remarkably high educational outcomes.”

 

“As a very general statement, the children from Asian families tend to have the highest educational outcomes, those from American and European families tend to look somewhat more like Canadians, although they still register higher educational outcomes than Canadian families on average, and those from Latin America and the Caribbean tend to display lower levels of educational attainment, but still roughly on par with children with Canadian-born parents (from 23% to 28% completed university).”

 

“[E]ducational attainment may work through a number of other factors. Parents, expectations regarding education matters, and immigrant families, particularly Asian families, tend to have higher educational expectations for their children, on average, than families with Canadian-born parents. Immigrants’ place of residence also matters. They are more likely to live in large cities than Canadian-born families, where educational attainment is higher. The factors mentioned so far refer to the family, but the group to which the child belongs also play a role. The tendency of young members of an ethnic group to have the advantages associated with more highly educated role models in their group and strong networks also plays a role. And the school system itself no doubt plays a role. The quality of education received depends less on the socio-economic background or place of residence of the family in Canada than in other countries such as the U.S.” “Family income does not seem to play a role; the likelihood of going to university does not depend upon family income in the immigrant community. This is important because many immigrant families struggle economically.”

 

“However, the gaps in economic outcomes between the second generation visible minority groups (relative to Whites with Canadian-born parents) are not large when compared to the much larger economic deficit experienced by their immigrant parents. It may be that for some, economic integration is a multi-generational process. The earnings gap for visible minorities relative to Whites is reduced across generations; it is greatest among the arriving generation. And it remains true that on average the children of immigrants do as well or better economically than their counterparts with Canadian-born parents. This success is not evident in most other western nation, notably in Europe.”

 

“In Canada, if differences in secondary school performance do not explain the higher university attendance rates among the children of immigrants, what does?” “It relates to higher parental expectations among immigrant families, the higher educational attainment of immigrant parents, where they live, and ‘ethnic group’ effects related to networks, role models and expectations. Canada obtains a larger share of its immigrants from countries that place a very high premium on education, such as China and India…”

 

“…couple of very important successes are often overlooked. The first is the success of the children of immigrants, and this is somewhat unique to Canada. It is not observed in most European nations, and to a lesser extent in the U.S. The second is Canadians’ positive perception of immigrants and the need for immigration. This too is somewhat unique to Canada, as negative reactions toward immigration are more evident in many European countries, the U.S. and Australia.”

 

Sintetizando…

Si tuviera que sintetizar lo de arriba en algunos puntos diría que pueden ser los siguientes:

  • Que tu hijo triunfe o no va a depender no tanto de él o de Canadá, sino más de lo que vos como padre le ofrezcas en materia de expectativas, modelos de vida y red de contacto a lo largo de su vida.
  • Tus ingresos o procedencia socio-económica o lugar de residencia no impactan en que tu hijo pueda o no ir a la Unviersidad.
  • Que los Latinos y del Caribe sean los que tienen menor índice no tiene nada que ver con vos. Son números donde se mezclan muchos tipos de personas de diferentes ecsalas socioecnómicas.
  • Los chincos y los Indios son competitivos y súper ambiciosos. Pero eso tiene su retorno en las generaciones posteriores. Quizás debamos aprender más de ellos.
  • La precepció local del inmigrante es buena. Esto no es EE.UU. ni Europa donde te van a mirar mal o te van a acosar. Ven a hacer tu vida y a darle un futuro a tus hijos. Que apra eso te estás rompiendo la espalda.

¿Cuáles son tus conclusiones?
