On May 28, 2021, Statistics Canada introduced a new detailed analysis of immigrants in nursing and health care support occupations. The report examines the representation of immigrants in nursing and health care support occupations as well as the professional integration of immigrants who completed their nursing education both in and outside Canada. According to the study, the vast majority of immigrants in all health care occupations were from the Caribbean and Bermuda, sub-Saharan Africa, and the Philippines. Especially, the immigrants from the Philippines accounted for nearly one-third of adult immigrants in nursing and health care support occupations. The analysis found out that a significant proportion of adult immigrants working in nursing and health care support occupations transitioned into these occupations after arriving in Canada. This case raises important questions for policies that focus on immigration as a solution to labour shortages in nursing and health care support occupations.
