Perspectives on Immigration (2003)

Findings from the Canadian Labour and Business Centre's Survey of Canadian Business, Labour and Public Sector Leaders

While Canada’s immigration system has several objectives, including family reunification and humanitarian commitment, it plays an important role in meeting the nation’s human resource requirements. It is therefore useful to shed light on Canadian management and labour leaders’ perspectives on immigration-related issues, particularly as they will reflect the practical workplace context within which organizations address immigration issues. This report presents an analysis of business and labour leaders’ views on immigration-related issues, drawing from the CLBC’s recently completed 2002 Viewpoints survey. The research examines the attitudes and perspectives of public and private sector leaders with respect to immigration levels, immigrant selection, recognition of foreign-credentials and the importance of immigration as a specific approach to addressing skill shortages and human resource requirements.
