Former Immigration Canada employee recommends increased Canadian immigration levels
Robert Vineberg calls for responsible Canadian immigration increase
Robert Vineberg, formerly the director of federal-provincial relations at Immigration Canada and now a research fellow at the Canada West Foundation, is arguing that Canada’s labour force growth and population growth is stagnant, and that Canada needs to increase the number of immigrants admitted into Canada every year.
In an article written for the Times and Transcript, Vineberg writes that during the federal election, all parties stated that Canada needed more immigrants but none would be specific about exactly how many were needed.
“Most provinces, and particularly the western provinces, want to increase their populations and see increased immigration as a major way to do so. The way to expand the federal immigration streams is not to freeze growth in provincial programs but to increase overall levels during the next several years,” he said. “An increase in immigration levels by 50,000 to 300,000 per year would bring the ratio back to the 0.87 per cent figure of two decades ago. An increase of 100,000 to 350,000 per year would see Canada finally achieve the one per cent per year goal that all parties ostensibly espouse.”
