Brian Stewart: Europe's job exodus, Canada's immigration shift

Brian Stewart: Europe's job exodus, Canada's immigration shift | US Canada European Immigration | Scoop.it
Europe's faltering economy has produced an exodus of young job seekers that Canadian employers seem eager to grab. But how will this change Canada's face to the world, Brian Stewart asks.
Macy Nossaman's insight:

This is an interesting article writen by a Canadian man. It talks about how people in Europe are searching for jobs. As an answer, Canada is actually recruiting Europeans to immigrate to a certain province in Canada and giving them a job. Specifically, it says that many unemployed Irish people immigrated to Canada to find work.

This is a really interesting artical that has to do with the few job oppurtunities in Europe. As a answer people are being brought over to Canada for jobs that they are skilled in. I think this a really great artical because it allows you to see that Canada is welcoming the immigrants so that they can work for the country and how Canada uses their abilities to their advantage while helping the people in the process

This is a great article about how immigration to Canada is increasing greatly by Europeans. It talks about how the majority of immigrants to Canada used to be from Asia, but the number is now increasing and coming from Europe instead. It's a perfect article for talking about immigration form Europe to Canada and the U.S. and how it's changing.

This is a great artical about European Immigrantion to Canada today. Due to the finacial hardships in Europe right now many Europeans are deciding that it would be good for them to move to Canada, were they'll have more oppurtunites to get a job and earn a good living for their family. Due to Canada's many programs to help immigrants get full citizenship it has become easier for immigrants to become a full citizen in Canada. This artical also shows how immigration is changing for Canada because more European immigrants are coming over instead for asian immigrants

This is a good article I read and I learned a lot of new things that I didn't know. I didn't know Canada was Europeans top destinations for immigration which surprised me. With Canada having many immigrants come in, it gives them new opportunities for jobs and to provide for their families. This article taught me about the immigration happening in Canada and how it's changing today.

I found the second graphic, "Field of Employment by Place of Birth", interesting because of the relevantly even distribution of employment across the board. The Latin American born population seems the be the only one that deviates from the trend, with high percentages in Agricultural and Construction fields, and the lowest numbers in Education, Health Care, & Social Services. Interesting how students are included and I wonder how accurate the Census Bureau is at measuring specific employment information for undocumented immigrants.
Laurel Stelter's comment, September 27, 2013 2:23 PM
I think that this is a really interesting article. The two pictures really help define America and its workplace well. It surprised me how many people weren't born in the U.S., but still work here.
