What: Mapping Migration from the Americas: The Official Website Launch
Labour flows from Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) to Canada are rising due to labour shortages, an aging population, and growth in several occupational sectors in Canada. There is an urgent need for informed research and analysis to better understand the nature and changing patterns of temporary foreign worker migration flows to Canada from the LAC region. Additionally, there is a lack of information in Canada about development impacts of labour migration for sending regions.
