Abstract
Previous policy changes have limited immigrants’ accessibility to insurance and health care. Fewer non citizen immigrants and their children (even U.S.-born) have Medicaid or job-based insurance, and many more are uninsured than is the case with native citizens or children of citizens. Non Citizens and their children also have worse access to both regular ambulatory and emergency care, even when insured. Immigration status is an important component of racial and ethnic disparities in insurance coverage and access to care.
Analysis of the problems associated with Immigration and healthcare will center on the following questions:
1. Who is an immigrant?
2. Why do immigrants migrate to this country?
3. How many immigrants are in the Country?
4. What positive role does an immigrant play in the Country?
5. What negative role does an immigrant play in the Country?
6. What impact does the new healthcare reform have on immigrants?
7. What are the challenges in healthcare

If not for immigration, Canada wouldn't be able to sustain current standards of living. This is not as much about Canadian international policy (too weak to dictate terms to the rest of the world), but it is about domestic policies that either help or discourage cultivation of entrepreneurship. Without it Canada will lose its economic position in the World…
