More Than Half Of Canadians Support Current Immigration Levels

Current Canadian immigration levels fine: Canadians

A new survey conducted by the Institute For Research on Public Policy has found that more than half of Canadians are fine with current Canadian immigration levels based on a small sampling of the population. According to this CTV article, 58 per cent of those who responded said current Canadian immigration levels, even though they are at record high levels, are fine.

Immigration levels are at more than twice the levels they were around the 1980s, when 100,000 people came to Canada annually. Now, approximately 200,000 immigrants come to Canada each year, with 280,000 admitted.

While support for higher immigration varies by region, the report said that those who support immigration in Canada find that Canada’s multiculturalism creates economic benefits and a source of pride for Canada.

The Prairies had the highest level of support for current immigration levels, with 62.8 per cent. In addition, immigration is definitely heading out west, which we wrote about here.

This poll comes after the Canadian Government called on Canadians to voice their opinions on Canada’s immigration levels in an online questionnaire in order to gather ideas for new government policies on immigration levels.

Over 2,000 people were polled in the survey.

Migrating is a hard task for anyone. Finding a job is even harder. Once I got a job offer, things started moving rapidly. So, I called used VisaPlace (Niren and associates) to assist with the process. Rania and Richard deserve the utmost respect in getting the job done. They have been patient with me and some set backs. Very professional.! Hands down, money was well spent. Thanks Rania and Richard, you make an awesome team. You'll definitely have a repeat customer with me !!
