Skilled workers needed in Western Provinces
Western provinces need foreign skilled workers
According to this article in the Globe and Mail, while Ottawa is busy trying to figure out how to deal with a serious immigration application backlog, the Western provinces are desperate for more foreign skilled workers as the economy booms and jobs are created.
British Columbia Premier Christy Clark told the Globe and Mail in an interview that, “The biggest one for us in the West is immigration. It’s one of the most important economic levers any government has and we don’t have it… we need to devolve immigration to provincial governments.”
The Western provinces wants more control over how many skilled workers they can bring to Canada. For example, right now BC can bring in 3,500 foreign skilled workers, but they’d like to see the number almost doubled.
Many small business owners in the Western provinces can’t bring in workers fast enough to suit their needs or grow their businesses.
The federal government is considering a pilot program to tackle the immigration application backlog, where provinces could get an additional 1,500 workers if they choose them from the pool of older applications, but it’s now known if they’ll actually implement the program.
