Hire Talented Newcomers

Hiring Newcomers Makes Good Business Sense

Ottawa is becoming increasingly reliant on immigrants to meet its labour market requirements. Luckily, an average of 6,000 immigrants a year settle in Ottawa, providing employers with a pool of skilled, highly educated and talented candidates to fill their workforce needs.

The benefits to employers are apparent:
•  Immigrants comprise 27% of Ottawa’s labour force with an undergraduate degree, 37% with a graduate degree, and
   57% of candidates with an earned doctorate.
•  Immigrants bring international experience, intelligence, and often connections in addition to global perspectives
   and specialized strengths and skill sets
