Finding a first job is an important hurdle for new immigrants when they first arrive in Canada.
Difficulty finding employment is cited as one of the reasons immigrants are more likely to start their own businesses than their Canadian-born counterparts.
A paper titled ‘Immigration, Business Ownership and Employment in Canada’ concludes that ‘rates of private business ownership and unincorporated self-employment are higher among immigrants than among the Canadian-born population’.
New immigrants are being trained in networking skills to help them positions to match their skills.
Experts say Canada is more reliant on building networks when it comes to finding jobs than other countries, often making it difficult for newcomers to secure positions matching their skills.
Immigrants say their lack of Canadian experience means they have to volunteer or take more basic jobs, and that it can take years before they move to something more suitable.
