Canada has been perceived as the land of immigrants. Internationally trained immigrants contribute to the Canadian economy with their skills. The Literature available suggests that Canadian immigration policy, however, has been ineffective given integrating many of these foreign qualified skilled immigrants into their professions. As a result, immigrants with years of education and relevant experience in their job, face difficulties like professional hardships, changing careers from one to another and face discrimination in the Canadian labor market. This research focuses on the lived experiences of members of a visible minority group from Pakistan. The finding indicates the underutilization of the skills and experiences of immigrants come under the economic class of immigration. The research also highlights the difficulties faced in securing employment in their field of study. Finally, it highlights the directions that could help overcome these obstacles to employment.
