Jobs for underemployed skilled foreigners—Skilled foreigners with no jobs or those who are underemployed in Canada can look forward to good times in Canada. This is due to Canada government’s latest plans to enable skilled immigrants get requisite jobs in Canada.

And businesses are finding it quite hard to cope up with such a big challenge adding the challenge needs partnership. Canada is launching the latest plan to help bring a solution to its skilled shortage crisis.

Speaking about the plan in detail, Kenney said unemployed or unemployed skilled immigrants will be targeted under the plan. And this will be done to help fill the gap between skills shortage and unemployed workforce in Canada.

Employers, academics and policy makers in Canada will be provided with a skills lab forum. This will act as a platform for discussing solutions to skills shortage in manufacturing sector of Canada, informed Kenney.

Around $1 million will be for creating regional committees to help provide employers and educators a platform for discussion of issues pertaining to labor shortage in Canada.

And around $4 million will be meant for developing occupational standards for guiding colleges/other educational institutions in the field of curriculum development.
