The divorce rate among immigrant women in Canada is notably lower

Statistics Canada reveals that Canadian-born women are nearly twice as likely to divorce than immigrant women. In 2017, 43% of Canadian-born women separated from their first partners, compared to 24% of immigrant women. This commitment increases among immigrants, especially the younger generations, with a lower divorce rate. Statistics Canada reports that union dissolution was twice as common among Canadian-born individuals (40%) than immigrants (18%) for those born between 1965 and 1997. Consequently, immigrants are less likely to remarry or enter a second union. In 2017, 31% of Canadian-born and 13% of immigrants entered a second union. For the entire population, 36% of first unions ended in 2017, with the highest rate among the Baby Boom generation (40%).
