This paper discusses the issue of immigration in Canada and attempts to show that there are differences between the immigration policies of the federal government and the provincial government of Alberta, but that they concur in one important aspect: both place emphasis on the need to attract skilled workers to Canada. The paper continues and relates that both allocate funds in order to attract workers. The paper also highlights the fact that skilled immigrants who come to Canada are unable to find work in their chosen professions, which points out the serious disconnection between the intent of immigration policies at both federal and provincial level. The paper agrees that this is not good for the immigrants nor good for Canada's economy and suggests methods of addressing this disconnection.

From the Paper:

"The federal government appears to be trying to find ways to resolve the disconnections. For example, the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, announced the launch of a Foreign Credentials Referral Office on 24th May 2007. In announcing this, Finley noted that she had often heard stories of "the newcomer to Canada, who came with skills and credentials ... and who has had to struggle ever since to get a job in his or her chosen field" ( Yet at the same time, she notes that "We need skilled newcomers and we need skilled newcomers to work in their chosen field" Hence, the new Foreign Credentials Referral Office will attempt to facilitate the accreditation of these immigrants, so as to resolve the futile disconnection of a country that needs skilled immigrants, on the one hand, and on the other hand, skilled immigrants who are prevented from working just because they cannot get their foreign credentials recognized in Canada."
