Ontario Government Expands Programs for Newcomers in York Region, GTA
MARKHAM, ON, Nov. 21 /CNW/ - The McGuinty government is investing
$1.75 million to expand programming to help employers tap into the wealth of
talent and skills of newcomers, Ontario Minister of Citizenship and
Immigration Mike Colle announced today.
The Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC) will coordinate
projects, which will help employers connect with skilled newcomers. The
projects will include supporting companies with onsite assistance to make
their recruitment and human resources practices more effective, a database of
job postings, an information campaign, enhancing the web site
www.hireimmigrants.ca and using job developers to steer employers to the appropriate resources. Participating employers will also be able to attend free workshops on assessing international credentials and work experience from the G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education at Ryerson University.
I asked myself if the business community is screaming for skilled labour then why do they need to be enticed to hire immigrants? Is the skilled labour shortage really a sham? Is the business community supporting mass immigration to flood the labour market with cheap labour? Are Canadians continuously being told that we need mass immigration to fill a looming labour so that we will support a policy we otherwise oppose? Why does the business community support the mass importation of immigrants only not to hire them? Is systemic racism the real reason why skilled immigrants are having a hard time finding employment in their field or is it because they were not needed in the first place? If the later is the reason then why do we need 250,000 immigrants a year when it is obvious that Canada doesn't need them and it is likely they will not find adequate employment? Why do we keep importing immigrants when they will just meet the same fate as their predecessors? What does Canadian experience really mean anyways? Is this a scam perpetrated by the Canadian business community to get public subsidies and subsidized labour? And why is it assumed that Canadians are not having an equally difficult time finding suitable employment as well?
Something tells me Canadians and immigrants are being had.
