Employment and Social Development Canada is funding SRDC for conducting a survey research to understand the needs and gaps in terms of labour market integration supports for skilled newcomers, and to identify which supports are the most effective. SRDC is partnering with selected Immigrant-serving Agencies (ISAs) all over Canada to understand their staff’s perspectives of the issues. The research team will also conduct an online survey of skilled newcomers who used employment support services from the partner ISAs. The SRDC research team will analyze systematically both the qualitative and quantitative data collected in order to provide grounded policy recommendations of potential improvements in employment supports to skilled newcomers.
