New Statistics Canada Report on Immigration to Canada
Canada Immigration Statistics and Population Increase
A new Canada Immigration Statistics report has found that Canada’s population increased in the third quarter of 2010 because of the highest rates of immigration to Canada in 40 years.
From July to October, Canada’s population increased 129,300 to 34,238,000. According to Statistics Canada, about 65 per cent or almost two-thirds of that population growth came from immigration to Canada. During the third quarter, approximately 84,200 new immigrants came to Canada.
Immigration to Canada by Province
Prince Edward Island had the highest population growth rate due to immigration to Canada, a 0.7% population increase due to about 1,200 new immigrants. Prince Edward Island was followed by Quebec with 16,8000 new immigrants resulting in a second place population increase and then Manitoba in third place with 4,700.
The population increase in Ontario was mostly from immigration to Canada, about 70% but no records were broken.
The only province in Canada that experienced growth naturally from a Canadian-born population was Alberta, with 60% of its population increase due to new arrivals and the remaining 40% from immigration to Canada.
According to Citizenship and Immigration Canada, 2010 should see the largest number of permanent residents coming to Canada in over five decades.

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.
This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!
VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
