Canada still has around 1,000,000 job vacancies
As members of the baby boomer generation rapidly approach retirement age, the Canadian Government is searching for solutions to an impending labour shortage. Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has also taken steps to mitigate the effects of this demographic change, but more needs to be done. 994,800 job vacancies were available in Canada as of September, a 3.8% increase from the previous month. The majority of new openings were in Ontario and Saskatchewan. Although job vacancies typically rise in September due to seasonal changes, this year, the number of vacancies only increased slightly, following three months of decline.

A majority of international students stay in the province they studied in
A recent study by the Conference Board of Canada has found that most international students who come to one province on a study permit tend to stay in the same province for additional studying or working periods. Quebec had the highest retention rate of international students at around 85%. Additionally, Manitoba and Alberta saw their rates go above 80%. British Columbia, Ontario, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Saskatchewan experienced retention rates between 70-80%. Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick, as well as three territories, retained 60-70% of students.

Quebeckers want the provincial province to increase the immigration levels
Although Quebec Premier Francois Legault wishes to keep immigration numbers steady, Quebeckers are the most likely Canadians who want more immigrants in the country. A new study by the Leger market research firm has revealed that residents of Quebec are more welcoming of immigration than those of any other province in Canada. People living in Montreal were the most pro-immigration of all respondents in Quebec. The findings of the online poll conducted by the Association for Canadian Studies contradict Quebec’s present policy on immigration.
