The Canadian Federal Government has recently shifted its immigration policy to recruit thousands of foreign nationals for permanent residency in Canada to fill specific high-demand jobs, primarily in healthcare, skilled trades, agriculture, transportation, and STEM fields. The government has invited almost 9,000 people to apply for permanent residency since late June, using the Express Entry system for economic immigration. While this approach is meant to ease the hiring challenges of the country, it has raised concerns among economists and policy experts who warn that today’s labour needs can change quickly, leaving the country with a surplus of workers in some fields. Despite this, the government continues prioritizing certain groups and has invited 8,600 people to apply for permanent residency over five rounds.
