This report presents the results of an empirical examination of the incomes of visible minorities, aboriginal Canadians, and whites. It takes into account immigration status and literacy and numeracy (cognitive) skill levels. The report examines the following questions: whether there are significant differences in cognitive skills, as well as education levels, among whites, aboriginals and visible minorities; whether these skills are related to income levels; how income differences between visible minorities and whites compare for immigrants versus those born in the country.
