Toronto alone has approximately 19.7 percent of the newcomers devoid of any jobs here. And this is higher than not just the joblessness rate of Canada-born people but also much higher than the last year’s unemployed rate of 13 percent. Out of the total inhabitants of Toronto, nearly 50 percent contain of immigrants. Therefore, the city needs extra efforts from the Canadian government to help newcomers in Toronto get associated to jobs.
