Immigration to Canada Increased in First Three Months of the Year
According to the Association for Canadian Studies, close to 74,000 new immigrants relocated to Canada in the first quarter of 2020
Ontario saw the most significant increase, followed by British Columbia, Alberta, and Quebec. Over 80 percent of the country’s population growth was fueled by international migration. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the government stands with the millions of people around the globe who ‘long for what is often taken for granted: a safe place to call home.’ He pledged to support forcibly displaced people and refugees. Canada is a compassionate country and very welcoming to newcomers.

President Donald Trump of the United States recently signed an executive order suspending the issuance of certain temporary worker visas until the end of the year. This action narrows immigration even further to the US. According to a Radio-Canada report, Canada will not be adopting any immigration suspension similar to the US. Canada still understands that newcomers support the job market and the economic growth of the country.
Even with restrictions on foreign travel in place, applications for permanent residence are still being approved, and Canadian immigration draws are still being held to allow people to submit permanent residence applications. Canada, with a population of around 38 million, welcomes close to 340,000 immigrants per year, equaling 0.9 percent of the population. The United States only allows newcomers equaling 0.3 percent of its population annually.
