Abstract: OBJECTIVE: Establishing an association between high chronic stress levels and variables considered to be negative regarding the stress profile for Mexican migrants living in Edmonton, Canada. METHODS: A simple random technique was used for choosing the target population; the sample size involved 58 migrants. The Nowack Stress Profile and Maslach Burnout Inventory were used to identify immigrants' stress symptoms during 2010-2011. RESULTS: Chronic stress levels were classified as being 24 % high, 45 % medium and 21 % low. Statistical regression analysis determined that a stressful situation and threat minimisation were predictors for developing high levels of chronic stress. CONCLUSIONS: Stress situation and threat minimisation were predictors for developing high levels of chronic stress; migrant women (unlike males) tended not to use threat minimisation to deal with stress.
