CLBC Handbook (2004)

Immigration & Skill Shortages

This CLBC Handbook includes:
- Trends in Immigration;
- Immigration as a Source of Skills; and
- Labour Market Integration ~ Issues and Challenges for New Immigrants.

Immigrants have always played a vital role in Canada, shaping our culture, our communities and contributing to our economic success. This handbook is about the role of immigration in meeting the national skills challenge facing Canada. What is the skills challenge? It is ensuring that Canada's standard of living and future opportunities for economic success and prosperity are not jeopardized by a lack of needed skills, or limited by the inability of individuals to put skills to use. It's about individual Canadians being equipped with the right skills, and having the resources and capacities to expand and update skills on an on-going basis.
