Ontario Chamber of Commerce
THINK FAST: ONTARIO EMPLOYER PERSPECTIVES ON IMMIGRATION REFORM AND THE EXPRESSION OF INTEREST SYSTEM 

Canada's immigration system is changing dramatically. In early 2015, the federal government will introduce a new application management system for selecting and processing economic immigrants: the Expression of Interest (EOI) system.

The goal of the EOI system is to make immigration more responsive to the needs of the country's labour market and to attract the best and brightest from across the globe.

This system represents a huge opportunity for the province and its employers, but only if it is designed properly. In order to be successful, the system must meet two key criteria: it must reflect the needs of employers, large and small, and accommodate Ontario's complex labour market realities.

Think Fast: Ontario Employer Perspectives on Immigration Reform and the Expression of Interest System makes 13 recommendations to the federal government as it finalizes the design of the EOI system. The recommendations are a product of extensive consultation with employers throughout the province.
