Canada’s approach to immigration faces major challenges, and requires reform if Canada is to meet the international competition for skilled immigrants, according to a new policy study from the C.D. Howe Institute. In Toward Improving Canada’s Skilled Immigration Policy: An Evaluation Approach, authors Charles M. Beach, Alan G. Green and Christopher Worswick assess the strengths and weaknesses of the current point system used to screen new arrivals. They identify the policy levers that affect the attributes and success rates of new arrivals, and break new ground by providing a tool to measure those impacts. Their policy recommendations make essential reading for all who care about the tough questions of immigration policy.
