Global refugee talent: Business leaders share insights on the skills and potential of the global refugee talent pool

This report argues that, as talent shortages will affect the future of the world’s largest economies in upcoming years, new and creative solutions to address these critical shortages are needed and that the global refugee population should be part of the solution. In the report, employers from both Canada and Australia across a range of industries attest to their urgent need for talent and their eagerness to recruit a previously inaccessible talent pool of international refugees. There are 25 million refugees worldwide. Many are working-age professionals with competitive skills who are restricted from working in their professions in their host countries. The report aims to inspire more companies to recruit refugee talent internationally, and governments to ensure refugees can access economic immigration pathways.
