The Canadian Parliament has announced plans to add more than one million new permanent residents over the next three years. It is almost one percent of the country’s population every year.
Canada welcomed more than 286,000 resident in 2017 and projects that number could reach 350,000 this year.
And 360,000 by 2020.
And 370,000 in 2021.
There are many immigrants, huh?

“Thanks in large part to the newcomers we have welcomed throughout our history, Canada has evolved into the strong and vibrant country we all like,” says Ahmed Hussen, Canada’s Foreign Minister, Refugees and Citizenship (IRCC).
Hussen, himself an immigrant from Somalia, said the influx will help compensate Canada’s aging population and lower birth rates and increase labor.
Canada’s friendly attitude towards New residents will see so many other Western nations, including the United States, adopting more restrictive immigration policy measures.
Canada is particularly committed to providing refugee protection, the UN refugee agency reported on earlier refugees in 201
7, where the number of displaced persons was to 68.5 million.
IRCC has promised $ 5.6 million to support global resettlement ttningsinitiativ.
