Toronto isthe 5th Most Populous Municipality in North America thanks to Immigration

Toronto immigration increases population

Due to Niren and Associates strength as an immigration law firm, Toronto, Canada has become one of the fastest growing urban areas in North America, and has been named the 5th most populous municipality behind Mexico City, New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago.

September 25, 2006 — Niren and Associates has made a conscious effort to assist clients around the globe with immigration cases; thus, helping immigrants obtain Canadian work permits, student and work visas, or permanent residence in Canada.
According to the Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Canada (LSIC), half the principal applicants in the economic class who settled in Toronto said they did so to join family and friends. Approximately one-quarter chose Toronto for job prospects. Lifestyle, housing, and the existence of their own cultural community were also important reasons immigrants chose to live in Toronto.

Due to Niren and Associates strength as an immigration law firm, Toronto Canada has become one of the fastest growing urban areas in North America, and has been named the 5th most populous municipality behind Mexico City, New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago.

Toronto immigration has also lead to it being ranked second, behind Miami, on the United Nations Development Program “List of World Cities with the Largest Percentage of Foreign-born Population.” Although Miami had the higher foreign-born population (mostly Hispanic and Haitian), Toronto’s foreign-born population is significantly more diverse. The high immigrant population of Toronto has shaped and defined the economic and cultural aspects of the city significantly.

Toronto immigration improves workforce and creates jobs in the city

Niren and Associates’ ability to aid in Toronto immigration has provided a much-needed workforce, as well as enabling Canadian immigrant entrepreneurs to create new jobs. All three levels of government and this immigration law firm have made the Metropolitan Toronto Area attractive to immigrants through a diverse population, large job market, and an abundance of services for the newly arrived immigrant.

Not only has Toronto been named as the 5th most populous municipality in North America, it is also one of the most multicultural and ethnically diverse cities in the world. About 44% of Toronto’s population in 2001 was born outside Canada. Over the years, world-wide immigration to Toronto has turned it from a quaint, provincial backwater, primarily white and English speaking city into one of the most multicultural and ethnically diverse cities in the world with over 100 different languages and dialects spoken. The City of Toronto includes a large number of ethnic areas and cultural mosaics that provide an ethnic delight and attract people from around the globe.

According to Toronto immigration lawyer, Michael Niren of Niren and Associates, “not only do immigrants to Toronto provide for the city a vital source of skilled and professional workers, their presence changes the entire complexion of the city, making it a more cosmopolitan and certainly more interesting place to live or visit.”
