In Canada: Lost in Translation
Robertson, Heather-jane
Phi Delta Kappan, v86 n5 p410 Jan 2005
Canada has a demonstrable shortage of skilled workers and professionals that will become more acute as the work force ages. Canadians stubbornly refuse to replicate themselves by having more children. The country is at risk of finding itself short not only of physicians and math teachers but also of enough working-age, tax-paying citizens to support aging baby boomers in the style to which they have become accustomed. This article discusses the immigration trends that are occurring in Canada and the difficulties that the graduating ESL students are facing. (Contains 11 notes.)
