The overall aim of the presented project is to gain insights into how well immigrants can use their foreign qualifications and skills in the Canadian and German labour markets, and how skills and qualifications affect their labour market outcomes. The Canadian Society is characterised by a plurality of immigrants. Canadian migration policy and corresponding recognition approaches are strongly geared to economic criteria, as well as qualifications and skills [8], [2]. Germany uses comparable criteria to steer its migration policy, although currently there is no points system regulating skilled migration in place like in Canada.
