Niagara's Labour Market in Transition - Niagara Region 2009 Supply & Demand Study
It is expected that by 2011, the total labour force growth in Canada is projected to be reliant on immigration. In Niagara while the population growth is projected to decline continuously, the aging population will be increasing because the baby boomers are retiring in large numbers. Economic innovation and prosperity is contingent upon attracting, recruiting and retaining well-trained immigrants.
