This article will use data collected in the 2001 and 2006 censuses of Canada to describe immigrants who used a language other than one of Canada’s official languages in their work. It will explore the extent to which they rely on non-official languages at work in conjunction with: their official language ability, their age at immigration, their level of education and their place of work in Canada. It will look at which languages immigrants actually use in their jobs. The article also examines whether immigrants are more likely to use non-official languages at work within their language communities
