Tax credit to hire new immigrants

2011-10-04

Law professor Sharry Aiken is available to discuss the Ontario Liberals' election promise of giving a $10,000 tax credit to businesses that hire new immigrants to Canada.

Professor Aiken specializes in refugee and immigration issues and feels the tax incentive is a good way to help out a group that has traditionally faced higher unemployment levels than other segments of the population.
