Nearly one in five recent immigrants in Toronto is jobless – the highest November since Statistics Canada started collecting the data in 2006.
The labour force survey results paint a worsening unemployment picture for the city’s newcomers that stands in sharp contrast to that of Canadian-born residents, whose jobless rate dropped this month.
And a new initiative through Scotiabank is teaming up with the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council to try to link immigrant professionals with their Canadian counterparts.
