Canada’s future prosperity depends on immigration. Studies by The Conference Board of Canada show that immigration leads to GDP growth, improves the worker-to-retiree ratio, and eases labour shortages that add to inflation. To meet Canada’s immigration goals, the country must not only attract newcomers but also retain them. Yet very few attempts have been made to evaluate Canada’s immigrant retention trends & its rate.

Attracting and Recruiting Newcomers

Finding committed, motivated and qualified individuals, and capitalizing on the economic benefits that diverse populations have to offer. Changing demographics are having an impact on business in Canada as unprecedented numbers of workers retire and fewer enter the labour market.

Manitoba and other provinces compete for skilled international talent and our competitiveness in the world depends, in a large part, on our ability to attract, integrate, and retain international talent.
