Elections news – tax credit to hire foreign lawyers

This interesting proposal seems to be experiencing lots of criticism. Remember that the McGuinty government brought you the Fair Access To Regulated Professions Act.

“Canadian immigrants are underemployed, and the Ontario Liberals think they have a solution: Help employers hire immigrants so they can get Canadian work experience. It may be well-meaning, but it is ultimately an inefficient and divisive policy.

The proposal would give $10,000 to employers to defray costs associated with training and mentorship needed to achieve Ontario certification. It’s focused on regulated professions – jobs in fields such as accounting, law, teaching, engineering, forestry and early childhood education.”
