Industry sectors that attract recent Chinese immigrants to Canada

This paper will explore the industry sectors that attract and retain the largest number of very recent Chinese immigrants (5 years or less) to Canada and the credential recognition services that Chinese skilled workers need in order to be able to work to their full potential in Canada. This paper will also include a review of the Canadian policies and services towards attracting foreign skilled workers. The findings of this research will help Canadian employers in their business growth and the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada scholars, migration think tanks, policy makers, and migrant workers advocacy groups to develop suggestions for changes to existing public policies and programs.
