Skilled immigrants wasting their talents in Canada
Immigrant doctors, as well as nurses and other well-educated newcomers across the country, are struggling to obtain Canadian accreditation and find work in their field, even in professions where there is demand for their skills.
"Our problem is that, since about 1990, we have not been able to fully make the best use of our immigrants," said Michael Bloom of the Conference Board of Canada.
"We know that because they haven't reached the level of pay, of income that matches the Canadian-born. They haven't done as well as the previous generations of immigrants."
The Leadership Summit for Women is an annual community-wide event that brings together women, trans* individuals, and allies from

The summit takes place on Saturday, November 12, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. at the David Braley Health Sciences building.
