The employment rate for immigrants reached 70.4 percent

A recent survey by IRCC found that in August 2021, the employment rate for recent immigrants who have been living in Canada for five years or less reached 70.4%, a 6.1% increase compared to August 2019.

Business groups are calling for more immigrants to increase labour market flexibility.

80% of foodservice employers were finding it difficult to fill vacancies for kitchen staff, while 67% were struggling to find front-of-house employees (servers, bartenders, and hostesses) that make Canadian employers hire immigrants to fill the labour market gaps.
