Acute Labour Shortage in Canada
Recently, there has been a historic high in Canadian job vacancies. This record is said to be ever since immigration was thrown open by the Canadian government last year. From reports, Canadian employers have expressed the need to hire technical roles for around 850,300 open positions.
Based on Canadian employers’ critical need to fill positions, the government has repeatedly announced plans to open immigration to take in a greater number of skilled workers.
Become A Canadian stated that the government plans to use this means to combat the acute labour shortage in the country. Ultimately, the admission of skilled immigrants will lead to further economic growth in the country.
Canada's Express Entry
As the labour shortage in Canada deepens, the government is trying every means to overcome this issue. One of the means is Canada’s Express Entry immigration system. This program offers permanent residency to attract international skilled workers.
