Canada’s global competitiveness will suffer unless companies deal with biases that are keeping professional immigrants underemployed, experts say.
“Many people still don’t get it. They still think that accepting immigrants to Canada is a social agenda, not recognizing that it is absolutely essential… for our global competitiveness,” said Wendy Cukier, founder and director of the Diversity Institute at Ryerson University.
“Companies need to realize it’s a competitive advantage to have people in your organization who look like the people you’re going to serve, if you want to expand internationally.”
