Canada needs skilled immigrants to match growth in emerging fields
New industries are emerging in Canada and internationally. Can Canada harness this new, exciting future? From clean technologies to artificial intelligence and health care services, this country needs internationally trained and skilled immigrants to push forward these rapidly growing industries, today and moving forward.
Canada’s economic future depends on skilled immigrants
For much of its history, Canada’s economic growth has been linked to the arrival of newcomers from abroad. Even though Canada has a successful immigration program focused on attracting highly skilled workers, immigrants are often short-changed on the pay scale. However, the wage gap can be addressed with government policy and leadership by Canadian employers.
Small-town demand for skilled immigrants is a big opportunity
Urban centres like Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver have expanded into nearby cities, creating large metropolitan areas. Small towns and rural areas, on the other hand, are facing pressures to grow. With people moving to larger cities and few young families to support population growth, small towns are relying on aging workforces approaching retirement. Local governments need to sustain their economies and recognize the valuable contributions internationally-trained immigrants can make.
