Immigrants in Canada occupying more entry-level and professional positions

According to a study by Statistics Canada, immigrants are progressively occupying both unskilled roles, which many Canadians are hesitant to take on, as well as professional positions. The study indicates that immigrants and temporary foreign workers have stepped into roles previously held by Canadian-born workers, as the latter have distanced themselves from low-skilled jobs. From 2001 to 2021, employment in low-skilled roles decreased by 500,000, with immigrant and temporary foreign workers filling 360,000 of these positions. Interestingly, immigrants are also increasingly taking on high-paying, professional roles, with a 92.4% increase in immigrant workers in such positions from 2001 to 2021.
