Immigration/Labour

As the existing Canadian workforce ages and population shifts occur over the next 20 years, a significant percentage of new entrants to the workforce will come as a result of immigration.

In order to ensure Sault Ste. Marie has the workers it needs to meet future demands, a number of strategies were initiated in recent years:

  • The City of Sault Ste. Marie launched an immigration web portal, funded by the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration, that's designed to assist recent and potential newcomers with finding vital information pertaining to Sault Ste. Marie.
  • New to the Sault, a program of the Sault Community Career Centre, is funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada and is a one-stop settlement service centre for newcomers to Canada living in Sault Ste. Marie and area. The program supports the successful integration of newcomers into the community.
