Data from the Ontario Child Health Study were used to examine the strength of association between child immigrant status and child psychiatric disorder, poor school performance, and use of mental health/social services. Bivariate results indicate that immigrant children are not at increased risk for psychiatric disorder or poor school performance and that they use mental health and social services significantly less often than do their nonimmigrant peers. Implications of the findings are explored.
