These 10 Canadian Cities Are Offering Most Number Of Jobs For Immigrants Under Canada Express Entry
Immigration is the cause of concern for many individuals, especially those who are in the workforce as an open economy brings with it competition! And hence there are many economies of the world which have been traditionally averse to immigration. Reasons range from protecting opportunities, cultural values and social structure. Some small countries like Vatican City & Liechtenstein do not permit people as it might overcrowd the country.
However, on the flipside, whether the country wants or not, they might benefit from immigration. These countries include those where the population is aging or in case of large part of populace retiring. Japan, which is known as one of the most xenophobic nations in the world, is now actually looking for immigration to solve its issues.
Other country which is now having its hopes high is Canada!
Canada To Open the Doors for Immigrants
This is because a large part of Canadians are going to retire this year and in order to fill critical labor market shortages it is absolutely necessary for the nation to welcome more immigrants.
Lets have a look at some stats. This year, Canada’s labour market has significantly shrunk as people aged 55 and older are retiring, leaving behind 1 million job vacancies in the country.
This decade, as many as Canada’s 9 million baby boomers are slated to retire. “A recent RBC survey suggested one-third of Canadians are retiring early, and three in 10 pre-retirees are changing their retirement date because of the pandemic.”
On the other hand, the fertility rate decreased to a record low of 1.4 children per woman in 2020. Notably, until and unless the fertility rate doesn’t increase to 2.1 babies per woman, the new generation wouldn’t be able to replace the job vacancies created by the retirees.
Immigration minister Sean Fraser went on to tweet, “With five million Canadians set to retire by the end of the decade, the economic need for immigration is more important than ever. We will continue to welcome a record number of immigrants to contribute to our communities.”
The Immigration.ca report said that “The current immigration levels plan targets 447,055 new permanent residents next year and 451,000 in 2024″. This year the country is poised to welcome 431,645 immigrants this year.
Top cities where one can find jobs include Brantford, Ottawa, Kelowna, Quebec, Calgary, Saskatoon, Abbotsford, Halifax, Victoria and Toronto.
In Brantford, the employment percentage increased by 17.3% last year. In Ottawa, it increased by 67%
