Canadian Economy Presents Better Scope Of Employment For Recent Immigrants Than Natives

New immigrants in Canada are now more likely to be employed than their peers who were born in the country. This is a recent phenomenon that emerges from the convergence of two major trends, as pointed out in the economic report from Desjardins

  • A noted increase in the employment rate of new immigrants since 2015
  • The gradual decline in the employment rate of people born in Canada.

New immigrants are disproportionate of core working age (25-54 years) and are often selected for human capital factors that make them ideal participants in Canada’s labor force.
On the other end, Canada is fighting the dual battle of aging demography and low birth rate among the local population. In this light, the wider effects that immigration will have on the economy are pertinent.

Over the next three years, Canada will aim to welcome roughly 1.45 million immigrants; with more than 60% projected to be through economic class programs.
