The happy benefit of immigration

Is immigration a cost or a benefit to the economy?  There are plenty of numbers and stats to analyze.  And plenty of anecdotal evidence.  From what we see:  it’s a net positive to companies, individuals and to Canada.

We spend so much time doing immigration that we often forget to look at the bigger picture and the benefits of immigration.  The companies we work with benefit from filling labour shortages and hiring the key skills needed to grow their businesses.  The applicants we work with benefit by being able to work and live in Canada and begin a new chapter in their careers and life.   And Canada is benefiting from these highly skilled additions to workforce and new diverse perspectives.  For our part in the process, we hear from happy companies that are glad they made the effort to hire a foreign worker and and happy employees glad they made the leap to relocate to Canada.  We like happy.
