In a report released Tuesday, the OECD suggested, among other things, that the federal government simplify the criteria to apply for permanent residency; that it examine whether the selection process for migrants with partners deters applicants from bringing their families, and adapt the process if so; and that the government consider abolishing the labour market impact assessment, which requires employers to prove there’s no qualified Canadian to fill the role for which a migrant worker is being hired. The report also praised Canada’s system as a role model for other nations, based on migrants’ health, citizenship and employment rates. (The Logic)
