Will Ontario Ban Canadian Work Experience Requirements?

In an historic move to offer more jobs, Ontario is expected to ban Canada work experience requirement in job postings and application form. 

Though it is only a proposed legislation for now, if passed, employers in Ontario won’t be able to make Canadian work experience one of the requirements in job postings. This will give more immigrants a chance to immigrate to Ontario and fill in the labor shortage demands. 

One thing that Ontario is struggling with is overqualified newcomers applying for dead-ends jobs. With the work experience requirement gone, newcomers would have a chance to apply for rewarding jobs and have a fulfilling career.
