Welcome to Canada. Now what?

Unlocking the potential of immigrants for business growth and innovation

Welcome to Canada. Now what?


We need immigrants to fuel our economic growth and they are eager to contribute their skills and experience, so why aren’t we fully and more effectively integrating them into the workforce?  We posed this question to various stakeholders as part of our second annual Dialogue on diversity roundtables held across the country earlier this year.

The result was a series of thought-provoking and insightful discussions on how Canada can do a better job of integrating skilled, foreign-trained workers into our workforce by identifying the barriers to integration and breaking them down.

We compiled all the insights, ideas and recommendations of these roundtable discussions into a white paper, which is available in several versions to ensure it is accessible to as many people as possible.

How to access the report

To ensure the white paper is available to people with different abilities, we have produced several versions for you to access below:
