Not enough skilled workers, Canadian bosses say

by

Canada’s economic growth could be severely hampered by a lack of skilled workers, according to a new C-Suite poll of Canadian executives reported in The Globe and Mail. Business leaders across the country say they can’t find workers the workers they need to do jobs like driving a truck or working at oil rigs, and they want the federal government to help out.

The article notes that “two-thirds of executives say they are having difficulty finding qualified employees, and one-third say the labour shortage is so severe it is preventing their company from growing as quickly as it could.”

Some highlights from the poll indicate Canadian bosses see immigration reform as a way to address the issue.
