Canada immigration news: A Statistics Canada report reveals immigrants to Canada are over-represented in nursing and healthcare support positions.
“In 2015/2016, they made up 22 per cent of the workforce in these occupations, compared with 16 per cent of the total employed population,” notes the report.
Immigrants from countries with predominantly-Black populations are among those newcomers most likely to enter into the Canadian workforce as nurses or other healthcare support workers. Asian immigrants were a close second.
