Why Canada is the Top Destination for Skilled and Unskilled Workers from the Dominican Republic

Employment in Canada is on the rise for skilled and unskilled workers aged 24-54, with 54,000 jobs created in September alone. With employment levels increasing and a lack of skilled and semi-skilled workers to fill the labour gap, the Canadian government has sought suitable candidates outside of Canada, specifically in sectors such as the healthcare and social assistance. Canada is unfortunately still feeling the effects of an ageing working population and low birth rates, which has had a huge impact on the country's economy.

In order to accommodate for this, Canada’s government has introduced a wide variety of immigration program, to assist with the waning skilled labour force as well as hopeful skilled workers looking to immigrate to Canada and start their new lives in one of the most dynamic and multicultural countries in the world. Options such as the Express Entry system and Provincial Nominee Programs have made the immigration application process much simpler, faster and accessible.

What makes it even more attractive to, specifically skilled and semiskilled workers from the Dominican Republic is that there are jobs that feature on Canada’s in-demand list that Dominicans specialise in but offers much more lucrative salaries.

In this article, we look at why Dominicans are choosing Canada as their top destinations to relocate to and what the quickest and simplest immigration options are.
