Canada has announced plans to welcome more than 1 million immigrants in the next 3 years.
In 2017, Canada welcomed more than 286,000 permanent residents. The immigration target for 2019 is more than 350,000. Canada aims 360,000 in 2020 and 370,000 in 2021. That’s over a million more permanent residents over the next three years.
Immigration Minister, Ahmed Hussen, said that Canada has developed into a strong and vibrant country. That is because of all the newcomers that the country has welcomed in the past.
Mr Hussen is an immigrant from Somalia himself. The CNN quoted him saying that the immigrant population helps offset Canada’s ageing population and decreasing birth rate. The immigrant population helps to strengthen the labour force of Canada.
Many countries like the US and Australia are taking a more restrictive stance towards immigrants. Canada, on the other hand, has a friendlier stance towards new residents. The country is dedicated to offering protection to refugees.
As per the United Nations Refugee Agency, there were more than 68.5 million refugees in 2017.
A budget of $5.6 million has been pledged by Canada’s IRCC towards global resettlement initiatives.
