To better understand how to engage employers in the immigration debate, this report aims to determine the extent to which employers think foreign-trained or educated individuals can fill their current or future labour market needs; identify any issues or concerns employers may have when hiring and/or assessing the skills of foreign-trained or educated individuals; identify any barriers to integrating foreign-trained or educated individuals into the labour force; and better understand the importance of foreign-trained or educated employees according to a number of factors, including city, province and company size.
