BuildForce Canada report urges immigration reforms for the construction sector

BuildForce Canada's latest report calls for reforms to the immigration system to address skilled labour shortages in the construction sector. Executive Director Bill Ferreira highlights four consensus principles recommended by industry stakeholders. These include addressing educational bias in Express Entry and better aligning federal and provincial immigration policies. The report also emphasizes the need for industry involvement in labour market planning and supporting competency-based skills assessments for foreign credential recognition. Stakeholders plan to advocate for these changes with the government to meet the construction industry's labour needs better.
