Immigration to Canada will play a major role in expanding the country’s population and financial wealth. To ensure growth in all sectors, Government of Canada has designed proactive immigration policies which would help attract the world’s brightest and talented individuals.

Canadian Employment in 2013

Employment Prospects for Immigrants

Canada welcomes more than half a million temporary and permanent residents every year. Canada immigration expects up to 260,000 permanent residents in 2013. Out of these, 158,000 will be coming from economic immigration streams.

Besides permanent residents, Canada is ready to welcome 180,000 temporary foreign workers too. While every sector needs skilled professionals, the most demanding fields that are experiencing skill shortage are the construction, health care and natural resource management.

Economic Impact of Immigration

Immigrants are the most important factor responsible for growth of Canada’s economy and will continue to remain so in the future.

“Our government’s number one priority remains economic and job growth,”

“Newcomers bring their skills and talents, contribute to our economy and help renew our workforce so that Canada remains competitive on the world stage.”

A number of immigration reforms are done to Canada’s immigration policies to attract more skilled foreign professionals.

Canada Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) – The FSWP points system has been designed for better integration of foreigners to Canada’s employment market. Language skills have got more value while foreign educational credentials must now be assessed, authenticated, and given equivalent value in Canada.
