1 million new immigrants will definitely help Canada’s economic growth and global competitiveness  

Late last year, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) released details for its 2018 multi-year Immigration Levels Plan.

Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, said in a statement: “This historic multi-year immigration levels plan will benefit all Canadians because immigrants will contribute their talents to support our economic growth and innovation, helping to keep our country at the forefront of the global economy.”

The plan outlines its multi-year strategy which will see Canada welcoming almost 1 million new permanent residents until 2020.

The multi-year plan is one of the most aggressive in recent memory. The increase in immigration levels will encourage innovation and represent a tangible investment in Canada’s future.

The plan also addresses the various needs of Canadian provinces and territories, with new immigrants contributing to economic growth to offset an ageing population.

The increase in immigration levels will also alleviate backlogs for applications still in process, at the same time providing those seeking refugee status in Canada.

Canada’s immigration system is one of the most dynamic on the planet. Canada takes great pride in providing settlement assistance to newly arrived immigrants, allowing Newcomers to make the transition in a minimum amount of time to help Tham make positive contributions to their communities faster.
