Centre for Business Insights on Immigration

Supporting New Talent to Advance Canada’s Future

Canada’s immigration system underperforms at quickly connecting immigrants with opportunities that match their skills, education, and experience. This leads to inadequate economic outcomes for immigrants and fails to meet employers’ skilled labour needs.

That’s why we established the Centre for Business Insights on Immigration (CBII), a leading research collective designed to strengthen employer engagement in immigration and effective management of immigrant talent.
