Immigration pilot programs are designed to help new immigrants settle in the areas, where local economies are struggling due to aging populations, shrinking labour forces and high out-migration. Employers in the those communities have identified challenges finding people for their business needs and this will create opportunities for cross-sector collaboration among employers, business groups, post-secondary institutions, the settlement sector, and government with the aim of addressing local labour market needs and positioning the community for growth.
Communities aim to bring unskilled, semi-skilled and skilled foreigners in to address these shortages by creating a path to permanent residence for those who want to live and work permanently in Canada. By offering support, resources, and guidance, these new immigrants will be encouraged to stay long-term and help the economy grow.
