Canada needs skilled immigrants to help build home supply: Housing minister

Speaking with Global's Anne Gaviola in a year-end interview, Minister of Housing Ahmed Hussen provided yet another reason why Ottawa decided to boost its immigration targets earlier this year. “We know there is over a million jobs in Canada that remain unfilled, so we need immigrants, skilled immigrants, to come in and help us fill those unfilled jobs and help us grow our economy,” Hussen said.
