Six Trends Shaping Immigrant Labour Market Integration

The purpose of this report is not to predict workforce and workplace changes coming over the horizon. The pandemic has shown that it is difficult to know what will happen one year ahead, let alone decades. Instead, this report compiles and presents information on emerging and established trends identified through a secondary scan of available grey literature, academic journals, online news sites and social media. Available sources of evidence were reviewed, coded and grouped into six major trends, followed by an issue-centred scan to deep dive into selected topics. This report captures trends that are relevant to the future of immigrant labour market outcomes, and have implications for immigrants, employers and policymakers.
