What will I learn?

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:

  • Why Canada is prioritizing immigration during the pandemic
  • Canada’s national economic outlook
  • Top Canadian provinces showing economic growth
  • Affordability and wages in Canada
  • Key industries driving Canada’s economic growth
  • The unemployment rate across Canada
