  • Most Canadians Hold Positive View Toward Immigrants

    A Pew Research Center report published on March 14, 2019,  says that people who live in Canada have the most positive view toward immigrants of any of the world's top 18 immigration destinations.


    According to the international survey, 68% of individuals living in Canada believe that immigrants make their country stronger.


    By comparison, most of the residents of these other top immigration destinations say immigrants make their country stronger: Australia (64 percent), United Kingdom (62 percent), Sweden (62 percent), Japan (59 percent), United States (59 percent), Germany (59 percent), Mexico (57 percent), Spain (56 percent), and France (56 percent).   


    Over half of the world's immigrants live in Canada and the other 17 countries whose residents were surveyed about their attitudes toward immigrants.


    Canada is home to more than seven million immigrants, who account for approximately 22% of the country's 37 million residents.


    A separate survey of people living in Canada that was conducted in February 2018 by the Environics Institute for Survey Research found that 80% of Canadians think that immigrants have a positive impact on the country's economy.  


    These findings support other studies showing a 30-year trend in which the positive attitudes that Canadians hold toward immigrants are only growing stronger with time.


    In fact, Canada's government has established an ambitious three-year goal for Canadian immigration which seeks to attract one million new permanent residents between 2019 and 2021 (the majority of whom will be skilled foreign workers and their family members).


    This updated Canadian immigration plan increases the number of foreign nationals allowed to move to Canada as permanent residents from 310,000 in 2018 to 330,800 new immigrants during 2019, 341,000 in 2020, and 350,000 by the end of 2021.
