concept/Social Determinants of Health-SDOH-Digital Library-Image.jpg Remigration is a special type of outmigration or emigration in which an international immigrant or interprovincial migrant migrates to a place different than that of birth or last permanent residence.

In the deliverable The Diversity of Immigrants to Manitoba, Migration Dynamics and Basic Healthcare Service Use by Urquia et al. (2020), remigration was defined similarly to outmigration or emigration but with a known intended destination upon termination of health care coverage. See the glossary term Cancellation of Healthcare Coverage for more information on intended destinations.
