Contents: Recently arrived and settled Salvadoran refugees and Anglo-Canadians in London, Ontario were compared with respect to psychological distress, quality of life, and life satisfaction. A matched sample of 60 participants in each group completed a demographic questionnaire, the Brief Symptom Inventory, a shortened version of the Quality of Life Questionnaire, and the Satisfaction with Life Scale in either English or Spanish. Significant group differences were obtained on measures of quality of life and life satisfaction, but not of psychological distress. The results are discussed in relation to findings with other refugee groups. Cette etude compare la detresse psychologique, la qualite de vie et la satisfaction par rapport aux conditions de vie chez refugies du Salvador et chez des anglo-canadiens recemment arrives et installes depuis quelques annees dans la ville de London, Ontario. Un echantillon apparie de 60 participants par groupe (recemment arrives versus installes depuis quelques annees) completait en anglais ou en espagnol un questionnaire demographique, le Brief Symptom Inventory, une version abregee du Quality of Life Questionnaire et le Satisfaction with Life Scale. Les resultats indiquent des differences significatives entre les groupes quant aux mesures de qualite de vie et de satisfaction par rapport aux conditions de vie et une abscence de difference quant a la detresse psychologique. Les resultats sont interpretes a la lumiere des donnees disponibles sur les autres groups de refugies.
