  • More Jobs in Canada Held by Immigrants

    According to information released in June 2016 by the Canadian government, immigrants now hold 25% of all jobs in Canada.

     

    Furthermore, data provided by Statistics Canada reveals that the number of jobs in Canada held by immigrants has been growing steadily over time.

     

    During the past decade, the share of foreign-born people who work in Canada has increased significantly from 20% in 2006 to 21% in 2011, 22% in 2014 and 25% in 2016.

     

    In fact, the Canadian government also reported that there were 261,000 more jobs in Canada held by immigrants during May 2016 than there were in May 2015.

     

    Thus, while immigrants account for one out of every five people who live in Canada, they now account for one out of every four people who work in Canada.

     

    As increasing numbers of Canadian workers retire from the labor force, it is expected that a larger proportion of the jobs in Canada will be filled by immigrants.

     

    Some experts believe that Canada has already reached a “tipping point” in which skilled foreign workers will increasingly be needed to replace older Canadians who retire, as well as to fill new jobs in Canada.

     

    Canada’s government and businesses want to keep the economy growing strong and, therefore, several Canadian immigration programs have been created in order to attract talent from outside of the country.

     

    If you and your family want to live and work in Canada, the time is right to apply for Canadian immigration.
