  • Most unfilled jobs are in the manufacturing and construction industries.
  • More than 50 percent of 214,000 new jobs were generated in March and April of 2012  alone , according to Statistics Canada.
  • There is a high demands for labor in trades, information technology, healthcare and retail departments.
  • In British Columbia, the construction industry is taking its lead while the oil companies in Alberta are booming.

A Challenge to immigrants

One of the biggest challenges that intending immigrants or foreign workers are facing is matching their skills to meet the criteria and get to Canadian labor market.

Immigration should raise productivity because according to some commentaries new immigrants bring about trade opportunities and open up a new door to diversified instruments for economic development and growth.

  • New immigrants suggest new outlook on business or trade.
  • They face risks with the desire to achieve their economic objective. This is a key component to economic transformations.

Need for Immigration-based productivity

  • Canadian economy has to address productivity.
  • Canadian working-age population is gaining age and will require tripling the annual number of new immigrants for years.
  • In order that the aging working-class of Canadians will not affect the quality of Canadian living, the immigration-based productivity should be significantly increased.

Key suggestions

  • Canadian government must continue its effort toward increasing the employment of:
  • The government should continue the Canadian Express Program through which temporary workers may be able to obtain permanent status in the country.
  • The policy on immigration should involved or employ long-term objectives based on long-term job market conditions.
  • The Federal Skilled Workers program should pay attention to the future job market consideration by establishing an information system that is devised to map out the labor market trends and activities.
  • The language barrier must be properly addressed.

Immigrants are critical part of Canada’s economic progress but there are just innate barriers that hinder the Canadian society and the immigrants from obtaining the full economic benefits. Language barrier is one.
