Ottawa Opens Two New Immigration Streams
The federal government has introduced two new immigration streams under the Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot (EMPP). The government is inclined toward giving access to more talented workers to Canadian employers.
Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada, stated that assisting employers in securing access to a new global talent pool is how the authorities intend to utilize the country’s migration system to overcome ongoing labour shortages.
Finding skilled workers displaced abroad without a long-term solution is the ultimate plan Canada came up with and is now promoting globally. He further added Canada would keep coming up with such scalable and innovative measures to grant entry to vulnerable individuals. Eventually, it would help businesses find and hire skilled workers needed to expand operations.
Let’s talk about the new immigration streams now.
