Connect - Accept - Recognize - Empower: The Integration of Immigrants into the Newfoundland and Labrador Workforce

Lay Summary 

This study argues that the barriers to employment integration of immigrants to Newfoundland and Labrador must be eliminated so that immigrants and employers can come together in a way that helps immigrants use their skills and abilities and also helps employers meet their employment needs.

The barriers to employment integration from the perspective of both immigrants and employers are identified and the report provides recommendations to improve the integration of internationally trained individuals into the local work force, specifically focusing on breaking down the barriers to the recognition of internationally acquired education and work experience. Removing these barriers could lead to meaningful employment and contribute to the economic development of the province.
