This study descriptively compares two older Canadian seasonal migrant populations in Florida: anglophones and francophones. It is based on two surveys, an anglophone survey conducted in 1986 and a non-probability survey of francophones in 1988. This exploratory study suggests that there may be little variation in the demographic profiles, migration experience and behaviour, living arrangements and social networks between the two types of seasonal migrants. The differences that do emerge, however, are interesting. There were strikingly different settlement patterns in Florida, and the francophones were more youthful and had larger families, contributing to larger social support networks.
