That is why Canada is prioritizing the development of labour complementary pathways which includes traditional resettlement for refugees and their families to find a safe and permanent solution.

Legal Statements

The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship said “Resettlement provides refugees with the opportunity to live in safety and rebuild their lives, but it shouldn’t mean their career experience gets overlooked in the process. Through this groundbreaking program, our government is highlighting skilled refugees’ professional achievements by allowing them to continue their career in Canada, while giving employers access to a pool of global talent. Several employers, such as Glen Haven Manor, have pioneered and championed this program from its inception, and I look forward to others across the country following their lead.”

Lara Dyer, Canada Director, Talent Beyond Boundaries said “Refugees have skills and talents that are desperately needed in the Canadian labour market—from personal care workers to skilled tradespeople to software engineers. As an authorized referral partner under the EMPP, Talent Beyond Boundaries will continue working hard with our government and other partners to make it easier for skilled refugees to apply and faster for Canadian employers to hire, ultimately increasing the number of refugees relocating to Canada overall.”
