「カナダで歓迎されない移民はアジアやアラブ地域出身」

「カナダで歓迎されない移民はアジアやアラブ地域出身」
"Asian, Arab immigrants least favoured, poll finds"
Canadians more open to accepting newcomers from Europe, Latin America and Africa
(Ottawa Citizen 2002年9月12日)

一方で、歓迎される移民の出身地域は、ヨーロッパ、ラテンアメリカ、アフリカらしい。



Environicsが1701人の成人のカナダ人を対象に実施した世論調査結果から。
9・11テロを振り返る企画の一環だったようなので、そのへんのイロも入ってます。あと当然ながら、国勢調査とかに比べて調査対象の人数が少ない(民間調査だから仕方ないだけど)。
読み方には注意が必要かも。原文も併せて読んでみてください。

*** 以下、数字に関するところを中心に ***

「移民の数が適性、又は少なすぎる」と考える回答者は60%。
一方で移民の数が多すぎると考える人は40%。

アラブ諸国からの移民が多すぎると答えた人:43%
アジア地域からの移民が多すぎると答えた人:40%
アフリカからの移民が多すぎると答えた人:24%
ラテンアメリカからの移民が多すぎると答えた人:21%

ヨーロッパからの移民は現状維持か増やすべきと答えた人:75%
ラテンアメリカからの移民は現状維持か増やすべきと答えた人:65%

「国際情勢に明るい、世界の事情をよく知っている」と回答した人達の71%が、「アラブやアジアからの移民が多すぎる」と考えている。
自分自身を「国際情勢に明るい」と思っている人達は、同時に、「ヨーロッパ、ラテンアメリカ、アフリカ」からの移民に対して好感を持っている傾向が見られる。


Asian, Arab immigrants least favoured, poll finds
Canadians more open to accepting newcomers from Europe, Latin America and Africa

Canadians have a marked preference for immigrants from Europe, Latin America and Africa over newcomers from Arab countries and Asia, an Environics poll indicates.

Fifty-three per cent of respondents contacted last month said Canada takes in either the right number or too few immigrants, while 40 per cent said there are too many immigrants.

But the poll suggests that while most Canadians remain open to immigrants, they are clearly more comfortable with newcomers from certain regions.

Forty-three per cent of respondents said Canada accepts too many immigrants from Arab countries, and 40 per cent said too many Asians were being admitted. That compares to 24 per cent who said there are too many Africans coming to Canada, 21 per cent who cited too many Latinos and 16 per cent who said there are too many Europeans.

The poll on security and immigration was conducted between Aug. 18 and Aug. 28 for an Association for Canadian Studies conference examining the effects of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on Canadian society.

Seventy-five per cent of those polled said Canada should maintain or increase immigration from Europe and 65 per cent said the same number or more should come from Latin America.

"If the post-September shift in attitudes towards immigrants was not significant amongst Canadians, there clearly remained concerns over certain types of immigrants," said Jack Jedwab, executive director of the Association for Canadian Studies and a lead organizer of the three-day conference, that begins today in Ottawa. "It might be said that it is not so much immigration (in its global sense) that has become more problematic to Canadians, but immigrants."

Mr. Jedwab noted that those who believe there are too many immigrants coming from certain parts of the world are in percentage terms not much greater than those who regard overall levels of immigration as too high.

The poll also asked Canadians whether they believe another terrorist attack on North America is likely. Among the 70 per cent who said it is either very likely or somewhat likely, the percentage of respondents who oppose immigration from Arab and Asian countries jumps to 49 and 47 per cent respectively.

"Those who fear that future attacks are very likely are also more inclined to think that there are too many immigrants from Arab and Asian countries," said Mr. Jedwab, who also found 71 per cent of those polled rated themselves either very knowledgeable or somewhat knowledgeable of international affairs. "As to knowledge of international affairs, those who regard themselves as very well informed were slightly less inclined to say that there are too many immigrants from Arab and Asian countries.

He said, however, that those who describe themselves as well informed displayed similar preferences for Europeans, Latin Americans and Africans.

The Environics Research Group poll, commissioned by the Association of Canadian Studies, surveyed 1,701 adult Canadians and is considered accurate within 2.4 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

The release of the poll results came as the Canadian Council for Refugees decried a "racist backlash." "Refugees have been particularly targeted in the media and unfairly linked with terrorism," the council said yesterday. "These attacks have occurred within a context in Canada of increased hate crimes and discrimination against religious and ethnic communities."
