In Immigrants and the Labour Force Ravi Pendakur considers whether today's immigrants are more upwardly mobile than those who came to Canada earlier, whether they face discrimination in the labour force, and whether refusal to recognize credentials earned before migrating hurts life chances in.

For example, inimmigrants made up % of the Canadian population and % of the Canadian labour force. Inthese figures were % and 19%, respectively. Between andthe Canadian labour force grew by million participants. New immigrants are on average younger and better educated than Canadian-born workers in the labour market, according to a recent report titled, The Improved Labour Market Performance of New Immigrants to Canada,   May 7, by Stephen Smith.

Immigration combined with efforts to improve the participation of under-represented groups in Canada’s labour force is “the best path” for ensuring the country’s economic growth and high living standards over the next 20 years, says a new Conference Board of Canada study.

Titled Can’t Go It Alone: Immigration is Key to Canada’s Growth Strategy. It continues: “Immigration will be among the most formative policy measures to grow the Canadian labour force and economy. “If Canada gradually raises its immigration rate to 1 per cent of its population by – up from about per cent today – newcomers would contribute some million workers to the labour force and one-third.

Analysis of recently released data, confirms that educated immigrants are underemployed in the Canadian labour force.

Immigrant Underperformance in Canada. Canada’s recent immigrants are better educated, on average, than native-born Canadians but they fare worse in the job market.

Immigrant labour was also extensively used during the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway, when thousands of British, American and European navvies resolutely pushed the ribbon of steel westward, while CHINESE navvies, many of them imported specifically for this purpose, performed the even grimmer task of building the railroad eastward.

Inamong men, the rate of labour force participation was % for French FOLS immigrants and % for French-English FOLS immigrants, compared to % for both francophone Canadian-born and non-francophone immigrant males outside Quebec.

Immigrants Are The Solution To Canada's Labour Shortage Economic immigration has always been the lifeblood of Canada's economic success and has played a key role in the building of our great nation. labor force participation by immigrants and the selection of immigrants by the government using labor market criteria that might direct immigrants toward ‘bottleneck’ areas could offset this on the supply side.

In particular, government admission of migrants based on economic criteria seems to be strongly pro-cyclical (Withers & Pope ). The Canadian Immigrant Labour Market in First results from Canada’s Labour Force Survey 6 Statistics Canada – Catalogue no.

Executive summary New results from the Labour Force Survey show immigrants had a wide array of labour market experiences, often influenced. Karen Lok Yi Wong. According to findings of Statistics Canada, immigrants overall perform less well than those born in Canada: lower earnings, lower employment rates and higher unemployment.I argue that poorer economic performance of immigrants is a result of discrimination in the labour market, especially from the employers.

With Canada increasing its immigration intake, and immigrants now accounting for the majority of Canada’s labour force growth, that wage gap must be having a meaningful drag on the overall. The report projects that increasing immigration to one per cent of Canada’s population by the early s would help keep Canada’s population, labour force.

The workforce gains are even more impressive when looked at regionally: Inimmigrants represented half of all workers in the Toronto, Ontario, metropolitan region.

Vancouver, British Columbia, had the second-highest proportion of immigrants in its labour force at per cent, followed by Calgary, Alberta, at per cent. Across all Canadian industries, meanwhile, women make up 48 per cent of the labour force. Despite this huge gap, there are some promising indicators.

The 13 per cent level achieved last year is the highest on record and comes after nearly 30 years of stagnation, during which women made up between 10 and 12 per cent of the construction workforce. A final, particularly Canadian question related to immigration is that of geography.
