How far have we come?

How much progress have we made in leveraging immigrants as a key source of talent?
|Canadian HR Reporter|Last Updated: 08/28/2018

In the early 2000s, the issue of overqualified immigrants in underpaid jobs was very much on the agenda.  Doctors, accountants, and engineers were driving cabs – but employers recognised this was a waste of talent and wanted to do something about it. In 2018, has this problem been addressed – or do we still have work to do? And how does this compare to progress made in other areas of diversity and inclusion?
