Conclusions

From the Paper:

"Another factor that generated mutations in the Canadian participation rates has a macroeconomic nature and is linked to globalization and market liberalization. Free circulation of products and services between countries has generated immigration to Canada. As such, currently, the Canadian workforce is formed of both locals and foreigners. Future predictions include a general decrease in youth and men's participation rates, a stagnation of women's participation rates and also a stagnation of immigrants' participation rates."
