Canada Named A Top Destination for Global Mobility

Canada Named A Top Destination for Global Mobility


According to global mobility expert Envoy, Canada is at the very top of the list when it comes to global mobility. "Global mobility" refers to the ability of employers to attract and smoothly move new employees from one country to another. As a top destination for global mobility, Canadian employers who are suffering during the labour shortage have the opportunity to recruit and hire skilled, trained and educated foreign workers quickly and smoothly. Canada's government has confirmed that immigration is critical to rebuilding and strengthening the Canadian labour market

What Makes Canada a Top Destination for Global Mobility?

When a country makes global mobility a priority, they prioritize policies in favor of bringing in immigrant workers to boost the economy and fill jobs. Canada has prioritized global mobility by putting in place immigration-friendly policies, increasing and updating its immigration goals and creating a favourable business environment to attract skilled, educated workers from other countries.

In 2022, immigrants make up the largest % of Canada's population in 150 years. Over the years Canada has made a lot of progress when it comes to growing its population by developing economic immigration policies and welcoming newcomers. Over 400,000 people migrated to Canada in 2018, helping maintain and grow the country’s economy, and by "2021, more than 8.3 million people, or almost one-quarter (23.0%) of the population, were, or had ever been, a landed immigrant or permanent resident in Canada." By 2031, it is predicted by the government that more than half of the working population in the country will have come from a different country. The main reason for this prediction is that Canada has a true desire for skilled and talented workers and puts forth the effort to make it known.

According to The Globe and Mail,

“Canada’s workforce has become more educated and diverse, new Statistics Canada census data shows, with a greater proportion of immigrants employed, a significant growth in the number of people in professional white-collar jobs and a surge in the number of university graduates.”

Immigration Programs Developed by Canada to Make Immigration Simple and Quick

Free Case Evaluation

Immigration programs have been put in place by Canada to simplify and speed up migrating to the country. These programs are essential to Canada’s growth and need for workers with special skills:

Global Talent Stream

The Global Talent Stream helps employers in Canada find and hire people from around the world who have valuable skills. This program typically brings in more than 300,000 people each year, and qualified applicants can receive approval in as little as 2 weeks.

Express Entry

Express Entry is a top program used by the Canadian government to give permanent residency to qualified workers from other countries. These individuals are given a Comprehensive Ranking System (CSR) score which they are encouraged to keep track of. Canada's Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) holds Express Entry draws throughout the year and the people with the highest score can apply for permanent residence in Canada.

Business Immigration

Business immigration programs for individuals who are investors, business owners and entrepreneurs who would like to bring their businesses and start-ups to Canada. These individuals can receive permanent residency by investing in a current company, starting a new business, or expanding their current business to Canada.

Provincial Nominee Program

Individuals who are part of the Provincial Nominee Program will can receive a quick visa application process based on local labour needs. To be considered for this program, the person must receive a nomination by a Canadian territory or province.

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) and the International Mobility Program (IMP)

The TFWP and the IMP programs are very similar as they allow businesses and companies to hire workers from other countries to fill short-term jobs. When a company is short of staff or a specific skill set, foreign workers may apply for a work visa using one of these programs.

Each of these programs are great examples of Canada’s increased immigration goals as well as its openness to employing foreigners and expanding the country’s skills. With the help of these programs, managers can fill positions quickly and easily, making Canada one of the greatest destinations for global mobility.

Canada’s Newest Immigration Goals to Deal with the Current Labour Shortage

Canada plans to welcome 1.45 immigrants by 2025. In November 2022, the immigration minister announced that the country plans to welcome about 500,000 immigrants annually, which will continue to benefit the economy in many ways.

Canada's other expanded key immigration goals announced by Canadian Immigration Minister Sean Fraser include:

  • Reuniting family members quickly

  • Giving foreign communities a safe place to call home

  • Developing more immigration programs

  • Ensuring that at least 4.4% of individuals living near Quebec can speak and understand French

  • Giving full attention to maintaining and further growing the economy
