Canada must attract more skilled immigrants
According to a recent report by the Business Council of Canada entitled “Powering a Strong Recovery: An Economic Growth Plan for Canada”, the government must double down its efforts on attracting more skilled workers to overcome the impact of an ageing population and boost the national post-COVID recovery plan of the economy. The key priorities for the country after the pandemic must be attracting and retaining international students. This cohort of young foreigners represents a huge opportunity for our nation. Moreover, the report states such graduates with a Canadian education are the ideal immigrants for Canada. In addition, many newcomers bring their entrepreneurial spirit and establish new businesses, which in turn create new jobs and pay taxes.
