A survey by the Business Council of Canada has shown that employers in Canada are starting to look towards immigration as a way to get workers to replace those lost from contracts being delayed or cancelled. The Business Council of Canada’s report, Canada’s Immigration Advantage: A Survey of Major Employers, divulges the outcomes of a survey conducted on 80 member companies. 1.6 million Canadians work for these entities in 20 industries, with revenues exceeding $1 trillion last year. The new report uncovers how severe the labour shortage is in Canada, with 80% of the companies admitting they cannot find skilled workers.
