Passport to Prosperity: Ontario’s Priorities for Immigration Reform

    OCC provides nine recommendations to address Ontario’s skills gap by leveraging the talent and global connections of our workforce

    In the global economy, Canada’s diversity is its greatest competitive advantage. Together, Canadians represent more than 200 ethnic origins and speak more than 200 languages. One out of five people in Canada’s population is foreign-born. Over 53 percent of these individuals have chosen to settle in Ontario.

    As the province that receives the most immigrants in the federation, Ontario is particularly invested in achieving reforms designed to advance the prosperity of both new market entrants and the economy.

    In addition to possessing valuable language abilities as well as foreign business networks, immigrants have talents critical to filling the existing skills gap.

    Our report, Passport to Prosperity: Ontario’s Priorities for Immigration Reform, contains nine recommendations designed to reduce Ontario’s costly skills gap and improve the labour outcomes of immigrants in the province.
