Canada Needs More Low-Skilled Immigrants Say Employers and Economists | Evelyn Ackah | Immigration Lawyer

Canada’s merit-based immigration system favors highly skilled and educated immigrants who can help grow the local economy and create jobs. Meanwhile, Canadian employers say they are “struggling to fill positions for farmworkers, truck drivers and food service personnel.

A new investigation by the Wall Street Journal says that Canada’s employers are facing an aging workforce and need more lower-skilled immigrants to fill jobs. Farm and blue-collar labor jobs in Canada are going unfilled and preventing some employers from meeting demand for their product and growing their business.

The investigation shows economists and employers say there is a “mismatch” between available jobs and arriving immigrants.

“Canada is a safe, friendly and welcoming country that appreciates the contributions immigrants make to help our economy,” said Calgary immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah. “Immigration law is becoming more complex and challenging every day. Immigration applications can be refused due to minor oversights and omissions that can delay or negatively impact your business or your family reunifications plans.”
