Although Canada is a big country most immigrants settle in the country’s biggest cities – Greater Toronto and Metro Vancouver areas. This has a big impact on cost of living and labour market which means settling in these cities comes at a significant cost.
It is important for new immigrants to understand that smaller cities in Canada have lower unemployment rates and can offer great job opportunities. Ageing population and other economic factors have created a great need for immigrant talent in these communities.
In this webinar, we bring you representatives from two such cities – London and Ottawa in Ontario. They will provide information on labour market and cost of living which are things new immigrants should definitely take into account when deciding in which community to build their lives.
