This paper focuses on the potential of competency assessment to support the long-term growth of the labour market by facilitating the appropriate employment of skilled immigrants. A competency-informed approach involves looking holistically at an individual’s ability to apply knowledge and skills with appropriate judgment in a defined setting.

The report details several key projects WES will undertake as part of our commitment to a more holistic, competency-informed assessment model of immigrants’ knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Ensuring that immigrants have access to pathways to employment, education, and training must be an essential piece of a long-term plan for Canadian growth and prosperity.
