Racer Immigration, a company of Canadian Immigration consultants, focus on helping people to find the best pathways to reach their permanent residence in Canada. We also know the struggle that Canadian businesses are facing nowadays with the shortage of skilled workers in their companies.
To deal with the scenario of labour shortages, for example, Quebec government issued new funding method to support businesses recruit temporary foreign workers. This action from the government brings another good opportunity for immigrants to settle in Canada. According to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), nowadays, Quebec is facing the highest job vacancy rates among Canada’s provinces.
Therefore, the Government of Quebec will fund around $21 million to support businesses in their recruitment process and integration of temporary foreign workers into their companies. With this help, the Government is estimating to support almost 2,000 Quebec businesses in their international recruitment efforts.
As part of this initiative, the funding will also support two programs in the province dedicated to working with temporary foreign workers to help them to integrate into Quebec’s labour market. The referred programs are PRIME – Programme d’aide à l’intégration des immigrants et des minorités visibles and IPOP – Programme d’intégration en employ de personnes fomées à l’étranger référées par un odre professionnel.
There is an estimate provided by the Quebec province’s chambers of commerce federation that says that the province needs about 60,000 immigrants per year to support the local economy to grow and to reduce the businesses labour shortages.
Although details of this funding have yet to be fleshed out to start to work for the businesses recruitment, this funding could represent an excellent opportunity for those people who want to work and live in Canada.
