Currently being debated in the Legislative Assembly, Bill 161, An Act with respect to immigration to Ontario and a related amendment to the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991, recognizes the ongoing nation-building role of immigration in forming Ontario’s social, economic and cultural values, also introducing measures for temporary labour migration such as employer registry. This panel will discuss the implications of Bill 161 for immigration and labour in the province from the perspectives of policy, research, labour, and the community.
