The biggest demographic wave in the Canada’s history hurtles into retirement; 2015 marked the first year in Canada’s history, with the population made up of more people over the age of 65 than under 15. Economist are calling this “The Retirement Boom”, and businesses need to be prepared to meet labour market needs, and also address the demand for skills. With the retirement of senior staff, there will be a gap in the experience and expertise they brought to the labour force. Skilled-immigrants provide a solution to the labour and skills need – and will minimize the gap in experience from boomer’s retirement and new graduates acquiring the skills and experience needed for high level positions.
