1967 Canada invented a way to remove discrimination
and prejudice from the process of choosing which
immigrants to let in. The points system ignored an
applicant’s race and country of origin (until then
it helped to be white). Instead, it rewarded
education, fluency in English or French and work
experience. With the change, Asians supplanted white
Europeans as the dominant immigrant group. The idea
of basing admission to Canada on merit rather than
on a bureaucrat’s whim was visionary at the time.
Several countries, including Australia, New Zealand
and Singapore, adopted Canadian-style points
systems. In Europe even politicians hostile to
“uncontrolled” immigration sing the praises of
Canada’s selective approach.

million job openings in the next seven years as
boomers retire, according to a provincial government
Two-thirds of the projected 985,100 job openings

About four out of five of those job openings will
require some form of post-secondary education, the
report said, while 44 per cent of job openings will
be in the skilled trades and technical occupations.
