article imageA Better Life for Immigrants with Skills

By somethingelseunique     Feb 18, 2007 in Lifestyle
For years, immigrants have been attracted to come to Canada in search of a better life. NDP Jack Layton introduces a seven-step plan to recognize the credentials of immigrants in Canada.
This new plan will open doors for new-comers who are lured into relocating to Canada for better living. For years, many immigrants have landed here in search for jobs related to their field and find themselves taking jobs as cashiers in grocery stores. The seven-step plan is set to open doors to immigrants and make it easier for their professional foreign degrees to be recognized.
Its plan calls for the creation of an agency for the recognition of foreign credentials, the establishment of uniform recognition practices across the country, websites to publicize accreditation processes, and more mentorship and training programs for newcomers.
Hopeful immigrants are ranked by a point system according to their skills and professional background. Layton believes that the federal government needs to address the discrepancies between the immigration application process and the recognition of their credentials in Canada.
Recognizing the professional credential of immigrants all over Canada will allow them to find the life they set out to live here and will also justify hiring by skills, not status.
