The University of Toronto published a new report which indicated the pandemic’s significant influence on a wide range of labour market outcomes for all workers in Canada. The adverse consequences have been particularly severe for recent immigrants compared to domestic-born individuals, who had a disproportionately lower probability of being employed and holding full-time jobs. Established immigrants also experienced similar problems. To sum up, the entire workforce felt pandemic-related consequences, but these effects were especially problematic for recent and established immigrants.
