Labour Market Shortages Indicates Need for
Additional Temporary Migration
  • 2006 Census released by Statistics Canada show
    15.3 per cent of Canadian workers are 55 or older
    and nearing retirement
  • 2,000,000 people aged 55 to 64 were employed in
    2006, 43 more than in 2001
  • Older workers will eventually retire
  • Statistics Canada analyst Geoff Bowlby stated the
    labour market could take 20 years to correct
    itself
  • Canadas aging workforce and tightening labour
    market are creating a convergence of interests
    between management and labour, as both parties
    scramble for workers
  • Lack of skilled labour impacts schedules and
    costs, which in turn could derail or delay
    critically important projects and jeopardise the
    economic benefits these projects generate

Temporary Migration Concerns
  • Stealing Canadian jobs?
  • Exploitation of the foreign national
  • Language barriers
  • Training
  • Retention
  • Safety

5
Can temporary migration address issues of labour
market responsiveness?
  • Proper recruitment strategies lead to 95
    retention in our business model
  • Temporary workforce helps companies meet their
    customer demand
  • Protection of Canadian jobs
  • In a competitive market a companys most valuable
    asset is their talent pool

6
Do temporary programs solve occupation supply and
demand problems?
  • Certain talents are in very short supply, hurting
    Canadian industry as it attempts to meet
    increasing demand
  • Recruitment efforts must include a responsible
    foreign recruitment strategy
  • Companies can increase market share if they have
    the talent to deliver
  • The temporary nature of certain programs protect
    Canada from unnecessary risk should demand
    decrease

7
Is temporary migration a reasonable economic
development strategy?
  • Labour shortage is putting a constraint on
    economic growth
  • The Conference Board of Canada warns Canadas job
    situation is likely to worsen over the next 20
    years due to an aging population
  • This strategy is reasonable however retention
    plans must always be considered


8
Will strategies that help temporary migrants
become permanent residents lead to better labour
market outcomes?
  • Will help address the countrys labour force
    needs by better focusing on temporary foreign
    workers for Canadian Permanent Residency
  • Citizenship and Immigration Canadas goal for
    2008 is to admit between 10,000 and 12,000 under
    the new Canadian Experience category of
    immigration
  • Help ensure Canada continues to grow and benefit
    from all that newcomers and their families bring
    to our country
  • Businesses continue to grow and operate
  • Increase in consumer spending
