Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Ahmed Hussen, spoke with Sudbury local employers about the place immigration has in the northern Ontario economy. He listened as employers shared the deep need for labor and skills in the area. He reported that the group spoke clearly that Canadian immigration is a key way to tackle the need. They discussed options to not only attract labor and talent to the region, but ways to retain the newcomers. The federal government has worked hard to reduce the wait times for Canadian visa applications and to increase funding for immigration and settlement. The next step will be to examine the individual needs of areas like northern Ontario and other remote, rural communities across Canada.

Possible Immigration Program
The group discussed a possible tailored pilot immigration program to test a strategy specifically designed for remote and rural communities, which would include northern Ontario. Earlier in the year, mayors representing larger urban regions across northern Ontario talked about demographic challenges in the area and possible solutions. Christian Provenzano, Sault Ste. Marie mayor, spoke about the Atlantic Immigration Pilot program, rolled out by the Canadian government last year, as an example of what could happen in their region. The program provided employers with the right in Atlantic Canada to hire employees who are not permanent residents or even Canadian citizens.
