The Need For Newcomers

Maralyn on Newcomers

The demographic change in Canada’s aging population threatens to limit economic growth in Canada.

Underutilized workers including persons with disabilities, women, youth, and older workers are all potential solutions to the looming demographic crisis.

Another factor affecting the labour market is the shift into the Knowledge Economy. Most positions are now expected to require some form of post-secondary education/training.

Employers are experiencing difficulty finding individuals with the specialized skills and talent required to help grow their businesses and to remain competitive in a global economy.

Hear Executive Director, Maralyn Tassone speak about how the Durham Region Unemployed Help Centre services newcomers and the need for newcomers in the shifting labour market.

A recently released report from the Advisory Council on Economic Growth suggests that “Canada should scale top talent immigration and create conditions for successful economic integration.”
