Our Unique Advantage

 

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:

  • 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.
