Ontario Needs Skilled Immigrants

Ottawa —Today, Monte McNaughton, Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development, issued the following statement calling on the federal government to allow Ontario to nominate more immigrants who can bring the skills and experience needed to grow the economy and create jobs. 

“The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program is a key step in addressing the province’s skilled labour shortage by helping bring workers with the skills and experience required to solve our economic challenges. This program helps grow our booming technology sector, staff the skilled construction trades, and meet regional needs.

In order to ensure a prosperous future for Ontario, our province requires immigrants with the skills and experience our economy needs. Under the leadership of Premier Ford, I am committed to attracting skilled workers to the province to fill gaps in the labour market, meet the needs of employers and help businesses grow, for the benefit of the people of Ontario.
