Improving Immigrant Selection: Further Changes Are Required Before Increasing Inflows

Christopher Worswick ()

No 157, e-briefs from C.D. Howe Institute

Abstract: Before increasing new immigrant intake targets, Canada should focus on improving immigrants’ labour market outcomes through reforms to the selection process, according to a report released today by the C.D. Howe Institute. In “Improving Immigrant Selection: Further Changes Are Required Before Increasing Inflows,” author Christopher Worswick cites recent evidence of poor outcomes for recent immigrants that raise a caution flag for higher annual targets.
