Canada’s unemployment rate hit a record low in May 2019 because of strong job creation and an elevated retirement rate. In some parts of the country, supply is already constrained. These employers are feeling the pressure, and immigration needs to be part of the solution.

Some themes that may be discussed:

  • Canada’s labour market challenge (national and regional perspectives)
  • Improving our immigration system to respond quickly to the needs of the labour market
  • Anti-immigrant sentiment
  • Strengthening our economy for established Canadians and new immigrants alike
  • Ensuring we have the right workers at the right time to continue to grow our economy
  • Economic streams of immigration
  • Immigration’s benefits to employers
