2. Soft skills - Tools & Resources - the number one issue for employers across all sectors and sizes of employer.  Share your experiences.

3. Employer Hub - our proposal to create a one-stop shop for information and tools and resources that support employers' recruitment and retention challenges.

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."
