The Canadian press recently reported that employment rate for the immigrants between the age of 25 to 54 has reached the highest in the year 2018. It stated that employment rate for immigrants of this age group was only that of 71% five years ago and has substantially increased as per the memo received from federal finance minister this January , 2019
Main reason for the increased employment is more immigrants are entering Canada under the federal government’s new multi-year immigration levels plan, the memo observes, which the ministry said reflected Canada’s high job-creation numbers.
The document also attributed the strong employment results because of the fact that many federal and provincial immigration programs are focused on human capital factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French language.
The memo also depicted on outcomes for second-generation Canadians, who it said are doing better than the children of Canadian-born parents when education and income are to be considered. Over 40 % of second-generation Canadians between the ages of 25 and 44 had a university degree, whereas Canadians whose parents were born in Canada was only that of 25 %. Considering the income, second-generation Canadians earned on average just around $4,000 more per year than their peers with two Canadian parents.
Overall it can be concluded that Canada’s Immigration plan is helping immigrants in general.
