Canada’s economy is recovering and immigration levels in the labour job market are reaching pre-pandemic levels. Coupled with Canada’s favourable immigration policies to support its ageing demography, Canada is welcoming a high rate of foreign immigrants to study, work and settle permanently in the country.
Canada’s economy gained 157,000 jobs in September, bringing the employment rate to almost pre-pandemic levels. The latest Labour Force Survey for September released by Statistics Canada examined Canada’s labour market conditions during the week of September 12 to 18 as non-essentials avenues like gyms, restaurants are open to the public.
Canada is witnessing growth in White collar sectors while blue-collar lags behind. Jobs in professional, scientific, and technical services, as well as finance, insurance, real estate, rental and leasing, are increasing. Manufacturing and natural resources saw some employment growth in September.
The report refers to immigrants who have landed within the past five years as “very recent” immigrants. The very recent immigrants in Canada continue to be favoured by the Canadian labour market. The employment trends returned to 2019 levels, reaching up to 71 per cent last month.
The decline in the unemployment rate in Canada is gradual and fell to 6.9 per cent, the lowest rate since the onset of the pandemic.
