Canada began accepting applications from skilled foreign workers Wednesday under a new programme to address labour shortages in the country.


The new Skilled Trades Programme will address serious labour shortages that some regions of the country are facing, and will help grow Canada’s economy, China’s official news agency, Xinhua, quoted Canada’s immigration minister Jason Kenney as saying in a statement.

“These long-overdue changes are part of the government’s plan to build a fast and flexible immigration system that is responsive to the needs of Canada’s economy,” he said.
