Summary/Abstract: The aim of this paper is to focus attention on the latest flow of Serbian emigration, caused by occurrences following disintegration of Yugoslav State at the beginning of the nineties of the twentieth century. Research has been made in the period between 1995 and 1997 among emigrants of the Canadian province Ontario, primarily in the capital Toronto. That latest flow of emigrants varies according to its composition. A very important component is represented by a number of highly qualified experts belonging to the young and middle-aged. They came mostly from developed urban areas. Mostly the whole families came to Canada in a few years, either with strong intentions to change their residence for good or for long time. According to socio - demographic features and dense concentration of emigrants in the urban centres of Canada, this flow can be placed in the very rare category, even unique type of migrations of Serbian inhabitants to North America.
