Canada has seen steady GDP growth over the past five years and is expected to be the G7 member with the second highest GDP growth for the 2019-20 period. The country is known historically for its low unemployment rate and major labour shortages. With over 400 000 work permits issued in 2019, Canada’s first response to this challenge is immigration.
In this context, the CETA is a significant help in filling in Canada’s skills shortages, by offering several alternatives to facilitate labour mobility and skills transfer between the EU and Canada.
