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.

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.

I am grateful for the legal services that I got from Sanaa and Alicea of Visa Place. I was impressed by their client centered approach. Their professionalism involved their hearts and heads to work on my case. I cannot compare the time they spent on it with the money I paid. All they wanted was a fine final document. I also liked their prompt communication. They are really passionate about what they do.
