Hello Sandeep,

Thank you for sharing your question with us.

You can find some detailed information on the ALLIES Canada website.

Here is an excerpt,


Immigrants arriving since the 1990s have not fared as well. Although they are the most highly educated cohort of immigrants to date – over 40% have a university education – after ten years immigrant men who arrived in 1990 were earning only 79.8% of the average for Canadian men, and immigrant women were earning 87.3% of the average for Canadian women. Research also shows that four out of ten new immigrants are forced to make a downwardly mobile shift in their career once they arrive in Canada.

In addition, a 2007 study showed that only 24% of internationally-educated immigrants were working in the regulated profession for which they were trained. Further, of those who were not, 77% were overqualified for their job.


I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
