The purpose of the webinar is to help you make the best decisions possible as you look for your dream job and settle into your new life in Canada.
Throughout the pandemic, Canada has continued to demonstrate its strong desire to welcome newcomers. As Canada’s economy starts to return to normal, there will be even greater focus on welcoming more immigrants, international students, and foreign workers. The expert speaker for this webinar was Marc Desormeaux, a Senior Economist at Scotiabank and one of Canada’s leading economic forecasters.
Here is a summary of what Marc discussed during the webinar:
Marc Desormeaux is a Senior Economist in Scotiabank’s Economics Department, where he is responsible for regional economic forecasting and commodity market coverage. During his time at Scotiabank, he has produced research on a wide range of sectors—including immigration, real estate, energy policy, and federal and provincial government finances. Prior to joining Scotiabank, Marc worked in the economic forecasting division at the Conference Board of Canada.
