RODRIGUEZ CHAVEZ, Ernesto  y  COBO QUINTERO, Salvador David. Canadians in Mexico. Immigration and International Mobility. Migr. Inter [online]. 2017, vol.9, n.1, pp.9-42. ISSN 2594-0279.

The increased presence of Canadians in Mexico has been apparent during the last two decades, especially in certain localities. The evolution and the most recent characteristics of this population was analized through comparative and complementary analysis of data from census information and immigration administrative records. The study results confirm the steady increase of Canadians in Mexico, as well as the diversification of this population in terms of migratory status and the areas and territories where it is present. Three main groups are identified: a) the employed population; b) retirees; and c) children under 16 years of age. Also notable are long-stay tourists, known as snowbirds. It is concluded that these immigration patterns are essentially associated with the integrationist model in North America (NAFTA), the opening to foreign investment and tourism in Mexico, the increase in the retired population in Canada, and the historical ties between the Mennonite communities in the two countries.

Palabras llave : Canadian; immigrants in Mexico; foreign investment; retirees; snowbirds.
