  • Inside Access: Education Quality and Immigrants’ Success in the Canadian Labour Market

C.D. Howe Institute events are open to members and their guests. Members can register online by signing in here, or contacting cdhoweevents@cdhowe.org.

Our current points system, to a large degree, treats education attainment as equal regardless of quality. Policymakers must find innovative ways to ensure a screening process for potential immigrants that is both non-discriminatory and enables a greater likelihood of employment – at good wages – upon arrival to Canada. How can we better evaluate the quality of immigrants' education, and what tools can complement these efforts? 

 

Inside Access is an exclusive, members-only opportunity:

  • 30 minute briefing and Q&A on Institute papers
  • A quick and convenient way to understand why our research is relevant to you, your organization, and the broader economy
  • Free as a member benefit

To register for this call, please contact Allie Kehoe at akehoe@cdhowe.org or 416-800-0476.
