Statistics Canada released a report revealing the main characteristics that skilled foreign workers are assessed by Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The study analyzed the 2005-2015 immigration cohort to see which aspects of successful applicants were most predictive of earnings in Canada for different periods. The study found that pre-landing Canadian work experience, proficiency in one of the official languages (English or French), education, and age influenced immigrants' earnings in Canada in the short, medium, and long term.
