Tourism businesses have long been leaders in hiring Canadians first, creating one of the most diverse workforces in Canada. With an aging population and increased competition for workers, tourism businesses are struggling to find workers more than ever before. Subsequently, businesses are closing, revenues and growth are hampered, and visitors are facing reduced service levels.

This panel discussion, moderated by Tourism HR Canada's President, Philip Mondor will examine the promise of 'progressive change' in Canada's immigration system and the need for permanent solutions that meet the skilled labour needs of tourism businesses. A panel of insightful tourism leaders from across the country will discuss tightening labour markets and the "middle ground" businesses require to gain access to internationally trained workers and providing the support they need on a pathway to permanent residency.
